Tonight I stopped at the market and bought some shitake mushrooms. I was in an Asian inspired mood and craving spinach. My recipe involves the following ingredients:
- Fresh Spinach
- Shitake Mushrooms
- Sesame Seeds
- Sesame Oil
- Soy Sauce
- Chili Sauce
- Minced Garlic
- Cavenders Seasoning
First step was to wash and slice the shitake mushrooms and wash and drain the spinach.
Next step was to toast the sesame seeds for a few minutes. As the seeds heated in the pan, I added the salt and Cavenders seasoning. Then I added a 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce.
I added the sliced and washed shitake mushrooms to the mixture quickly coating the mushrooms with the seeds. I then added just a bit of minced garlic, a dash of chili sauce, and just another 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce.
After just a few minutes, I turned down the heat and added the spinach just long enough to start wilting.
Stirred everything together nicely to evenly coat the sesame seeds, and it was ready. This is a meal that’s ready in under 15 minutes and can be served as a main meal or side dish.
Delicious, healthy, and fast.

That looks sooooo delicious. I love shitake mushrooms, they are my absolute favorite. I've never seen them here in Saudi though. 😦
I was wondering today if you'd like them though since I use soy sauce…?? Then again, you haven't noticed I use soy in a lot of my cooking.
