    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe comes from "The Eating Well with Diabetes Cookbook". It makes great use of the dried shitakes I always have on hand. It is low in fat and high in fiber.

      Wonderful side dish! I made my own brown and wild rice mix by mixing 1/4 c wild rice with 3/4 c brown rice. I used fresh shiitake mushrooms but omitted the scallions (personal preference), and it still had plenty of flavor. Thanks Paula for another keeper! Made for ZWT6.

      Oh yeah, we were liking this one tonight for dinner with our Yakitori ( Japanese Grilled Chicken Skewers). I followed this recipe to a tee, using fresh shitake mushrooms. I would not change a thing! Perfect. I would definitely serve this to company. Thanks, Paula. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.

      This is very good. Went very well with grilled salmon. I used dried shiitakes. I have some dried mixed wild mushrooms that would be very good in this dish also. I will be making this again!
