Dried Shiitake mushrooms have a meaty, earthy richness and are praised by cooks for their umami flavor which develops over the drying period. Saute Shiitake for a wonderful companion to meat, pasta, or rice. Because of their rich flavor, the sautéed mushrooms can also be added to vegetarian dishes in place of meat. Use them to create a deep and rich mushroom gravy or sauce over pasta and rice.
