Shiitake Mushrooms Stir Fry with Peppers – I absolutely love simple stir fries like this dish. It’s easy to make but also incredibly flavorful! I use fresh shiitake mushroom and green peppers, but you can use other types of bell peppers as you prefer also.

There are actually so many different types of mushrooms, and shiitake is one of my favorite types. It’s so flavorful, and you can make it in soup, stir fries, and more!

How to prepare Shiitake Mushroom?

The first thing is removing the stems. You can easily do this by popping them off or just using a knife and slicing them off. Technically you can do this after washing it but I find it easier to do before.

The second thing I do is washing the shiitake mushrooms. Rinse the shiitake mushrooms under cold water to remove dirt. Since it will absorb the water, you can either shake them or even squeeze them out and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Lastly, slice the shiitake mushrooms in to strips for this recipe.

Where to buy Shiitake Mushrooms?

There are two types of shiitake mushrooms I cook with – fresh and dried. Fresh is great for stir fries like this dish, while I love using the dried shiitake mushrooms for soups and Taiwanese Rice Noodles Stir Fry,

You can buy both types of shiitake mushrooms at your local Asian supermarket. For dried shiitake mushrooms you can also find them on Amazon!

Are shiitake mushrooms healthy?

Yes, shiitake mushrooms are very nutritious as they contain lots of healthy vitamins and minerals!

Shiitake mushrooms are great for heart health as it contains compounds that help lower cholesterol, such as eritadenine. It also contains beta-glucans, which is known to reduce inflammation and help prevent absorption of cholesterol.

These mushrooms also contain polysaccharides like lentinans and other beta-glucans which helps prevent cell damage, and have anti inflammatory properties! Lentinans also been known to have anti cancer abilities too.
