In reading the note from Judy Lederich-Mayer and Larry Mayer
concerning veggie oyster sauce, the mention of shiitake mushrooms
jarred my cobwebby memory and i remembered I have a huge bag of dried
shiitake mushrooms on my shelf. My fiance(also a vegetarian) does not
care for asian food and I have not been creative enough to figure out
what else to do with the shiitakes. I love their flavor. Does anyone
have recipes for dishes using them or maybe sauces to be used over
veggie burgers etc. that they might want to share? Thanks in advance.
Also, I tried the zucchini fake crab cakes and they were wonderful!
Just make sure you squeeze as much water out of the shredded zukes as
you can. My fiance is an Maryland Eastern Shoreman and he even said
they were pretty close to the real thing.(I used about a 1 T. Wye
River Seasoning for the recipes. Close enough to Old Bay!)
