There are few foods that I like better than chewy, chunky mushrooms.
So when I found some fresh, organic shitake mushrooms at my
local farmer’s market, I couldn’t wait to get them home.
Besides being delectable, shitake mushrooms are noted for their
healing and medicinal properties.
Next, I scooped up bunches of farm fresh, organic watercress and
mesclun lettuce mix.
I was running late so I checked to see what I had on hand in
my kitchen, then whipped up two simple yet satisfying dishes:
*Raw Marinated Shitake Mushrooms
*Mesclun & Watercress Salad with Marinated Shitake Mushrooms
First, I prepared:
Raw Marinated Shitake Mushrooms
4-5 organic Shitake Mushrooms
1/4 cup Braggs Liquid Amino
2 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup organic Coconut Oil
Wipe mushrooms with a wet cloth and pat dry.
Cut them into thin slices.
Place the slices in a glass or ceramic bowl.
Pour liquid amino, nutritional yeast and coconut oil
into a small dish.
Blend it together.
Pour the marinade over the shitake mushrooms.
Toss them gently.
Cover and leave on the counter to marinate for about 15 minutes.
Mesclun & Watercress Salad with Marinated Shitake Mushrooms
1 cup organic Mesclun greens, washed and drained
1 cup organic Watercress, washed and drained
1 organic red or yellow onion, peeled and sliced
1/cup organic scallions, washed and sliced
1 organic cucumber, washed and sliced and quartered
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, drained
Add the mesclun and watercress to the salad bowl.
Add cucumbers to the greens and mix them in gently.
Sprinkle sliced onions across the greens.
Add the Marinade:
Use a spoon with holes to drain the marinated mushrooms
and place them onto the center of the greens.
Distribute olives around the edges of the salad.
Sprinkle green onions across the salad.
Pour the remaining marinade over the salad as a dressing.
Gently toss all of the salad ingredients with tongs.
Serve and enjoy!
1 organic Cucumber, washed and sliced and quartered
1 organic Tomato, washed, sliced and cubed
1/2 organic Red pepper, washed and sliced
1/2 Avocado, washed, peeled and sliced
Or whatever your heart desires!
