No Fry Shiitake Mushroom Stroganoff
Attention, all mushroom lovers! You are going to love this fabulous stroganoff recipe that involves no frying (No frying means zero trans-fat which means no clogged arteries!). Plus, Shiitake— classic staples in Japanese and Chinese cuisine – is wonderful for lowering cholesterol. It is also fantastic for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases and cholesterol problems. Of course, if you’re just like me and you love mushrooms and healthy eating, this is also the perfect recipe for you.
- 250 grans (9 ounces) mushroom, sliced

Soaking the shiitake mushrooms overnight is ideal but if you are in a hurry, you can soak them in warm water.
