Savory Stir-Fried Mushrooms

Try this quickie recipe from Czarnecki, and even if you can't explain the flavor of the dish, you'll begin to understand umami.

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil

  • 1/2 cup sliced scallions (green onions)
  • 12 ounces fresh white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 ounces fresh shiitake mushroom caps, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Japanese soy sauce (Kikkoman)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat; add peanut oil. Stir-fry scallions for 30 seconds, then add mushrooms. Continue to stir-fry until liquid begins to evaporate and mushrooms begin to brown, about 6 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, salt and sugar. Serve over rice or pasta or with grilled meats. Makes about 4 servings.
