Sesame Mushrooms

Sesame Mushrooms
I just can’t get enough of mushrooms be it portobello, shiitake, oyster or just plain cremini mushrooms. It started by pairing them with oyster sauce then tossing them into pasta in my Chicken and Mushroom Rigatoni and the best yet was my original recipe for Portobello Parmesan Au Gratin which quickly became a favorite.

Today I’m pairing them with sesame oil, basil leaves, carrots, green onions and some sauces for a quick stir-fry. This is best done in a clay pot, but also doable on the stove top. It’s a lovely fusion of color and flavors to make a great side dish with rice and cooks in less than 10 minutes.

Lastly, I apologize for the grainy pictures. Rainy season in Florida does not go hand in hand with great pictures. Nevertheless, hopefully I’ve managed to convey how delicious it is!
