Shiitake Mushroom Garlic Gravy

Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes


• 8 Eden Whole Shiitake Mushrooms, soaked 10 minutes in 1 cup hot water

• 1 1/2 cups water, including reserved shiitake soaking water

• 1/2 tsp Eden Sesame Oil

• 2 Tbsp onion, minced

• 2 tsp Eden Kuzu Root Starch, dissolved in 1 Tbsp. cold water

• 1 1/2 tsp Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce, or to taste

• 2 Tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped


Remove the stems from the shiitake, discard stems and slice the caps. Reserve the soaking water and use as part of the water measurement. Heat up the oil, and sauté the onions, garlic and mushrooms for 2 to 3 minutes. Add water, cover and simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Slowly, add the diluted kuzu, stirring constantly until translucent and thick. Reduce the flame to low and add the shoyu. Mix, cover and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from the flame and mix in the chives. Serve as you would any other gravy. Vegetable or fish stock may be substituted for water to create different flavors for various occasions.
