Dried Sliced Shiitake Mushrooms have a rich umami flavour – they’re a fantastic all-rounder mushroom to use in risottos, pasta, ramen and broths. Shiitakes are a classic Chinese and Japanese ingredient.
The Japanese recipe Simmered Shiitake mushrooms is a popular recipe for dried shiitakes. Rehydrate the mushrooms, then keep the mushroomy water and bring to the boil with soy sauce, mirin and sugar before coating the plump mushrooms.

One of our favourite ways to use rehydrated mushrooms is to pan-fry them in butter with chestnut mushrooms or ordinary white mushrooms, making the flavours go even further.
