Shiitake Fried Rice


Shiitake Fried Rice

Shiitake is one of the meatiest mushrooms that you can use to make delicious recipes – like this fried rice!

Shiitake Fried Rice

I almost always use dried mushrooms as they are more flavorful than the fresh ones (and also because Shiitake are seasonal mushrooms where I live).

Plus they have a shelf life of up to 1 year so you can just use the shrooms whenever you want.

Shiitake Fried Rice

I recommend using soy sauce (or tamari) for that extra color and flavor.

Delicious vegan shiitake fried rice recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 inch ginger, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms (fresh or dried)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Salt + pepper + paprika, to taste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth, optional (if you don't like a dry fried rice) 
  • 1.5 cups cooked rice
  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • Toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. For dried mushrooms, add the shrooms to a bowl and add 2 cups water. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Drain and slice into pieces. Set aside.
  2. For fresh mushrooms, simply rinse and slice into pieces. Set aside.
  3. Heat a pan over low-medium heat. Add sesame oil.
  4. Once it's hot, add ginger + garlic + onion. Stir and saute until the onions are translucent. 
  5. Add the sliced mushrooms. Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes over the same low-medium heat.
  6. Add soy sauce, salt, pepper, paprika, and vegetable broth (if using). Stir and cook for 2 minutes (4-5 minutes if you're using veggie broth).
  7. Next, add the cooked rice and mix well. 
  8. Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with freshly chopped parsley + toasted sesame seeds and serve. 

Notes

  1. If you don't like a 'dry' fried rice, I suggest you add 1/4 cup veggie broth. I used a just-cooked rice while making this and didn't feel the need to add any liquid. Enjoy cooking! 🙂
