Shiitake Shakedown

Recipe by ChefLee
READY IN: 20mins


  • 3
    (3 1/4 ounce) crates fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • 3
    tablespoons light olive oil
  • 18
    teaspoon salt (or just shake it over the shrooms)
  • 18
    teaspoon pepper (or just shake it over the shrooms too)
  • 18
    teaspoon garlic powder (or just shake this over them too!)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Use a damp paper towel to wash the tops of your mushrooms. (mushrooms are like sponges, you don't want to wash them in water because they will become watery and tasteless).
  • Remove any large stems. (shiitake stems are sort of woody and tougher than the caps).
  • Slice the mushrooms and place on a cookie baking sheet.
  • Pour the olive oil over the slices and toss to coat with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle the shrooms with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Give the cookie sheet a shake to spread all the shrooms out flat.
  • Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the mushrooms immediately from the baking sheet with a spatula.
  • Enjoy on a sandwich or any way you want!
