Category Archives: Shiitake Mushrooms

I am so short on time but need a great meal to take with us to work!

So tonight is yet another night that we have to work the evening shift and I need to prepare a quick, nutritious, meal to take along.  I am thinking that it needs to be light, low in calories, nutritious, yet satisfying.  Ok…so on my last trip to the Farmer’s Market I bought two shiitake mushrooms and wasn’t sure what to do with them, so tonight is the night to use them.  I knew that the mushroom would be the base of the meal,  they are great grilled , but I don’t have the time, nor the energy to start the grill and OMG! look at the time…I need to leave the house in an hour!  Okay, so here is what I did.

In a frying pan brown 3 cloves of garlic in good olive oil, remove garlic and set aside, cut mushroom into slices and saute in olive oil until slightly softened, add greens…(I used collard greens) just until wilted.  Add 1 can white beans, salt and pepper to taste. Return the garlic that has been browned.  That’s it, dinner is done, and it took less than 15 minutes!

You have to try this recipe!  It really is yummy!
