Shiitake are cholesterol-free, a good source of fiber, and function as a food source of vitamin D. These powerful fungi contain all eight amino acids as well as vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

Diced into a mushroom-and-meat blend, sautéed, grilled, roasted, whatever, you can incorporate this medicinal powerhouse into a variety of your favorite dishes. Their savory umami flavor and satisfying meaty texture make shiitake an excellent ingredient in vegetarian meals.
