    Snow Fungus & Wakame Salad

    I always stock Dried Cut Wakame and Dried Snow Fungus, aka White Jelly Mushroom. Are you unfamiliar with them? They are available from most Asian grocery stores.

    Ukrainian Dumplings with Bacon & Mushrooms

    I often cook similar dishes using Gnocchi. ‘Gnocchi & Mushrooms In Butter Soy Sauce’ is my favourite. However, Gnocchi is not so quick & easy to make as Boiled Potatoes are the main ingredient.

This is another way to enjoy the meaty Shiitake. It’s …
