Do you know Shiitake Mushrooms? They have Asian origin, mainly from China and Japan, but today they are also grown in our Italian territory. Shiitake is defined as the “elixir of life” and is the basis of oriental medicine precisely because of its beneficial properties.
In a pan heat the sesame oil, add the maple syrup or honey, soy sauce, sesame seeds, pepper, peeled and grated fresh ginger and corn starch. Cook for 2-3 minutes until you get a thick sauce. Add the mushrooms and mix to cover them for a few minutes. Serve with the basmati rice and the green part of the spring onion cut into rings.
