Stir-Fried Shiitake Mushrooms with Mung Beans

Stir-fried Shiitake Mushrooms with Mung Beans is one of the easiest vegetable dishes to make. It works really well with any other rice dishes. Stir-fried vegetable dishes can be a great way to get vegetables into your meal.

The only part of cooking the Stir-fried Shiitake Mushrooms recipe that takes a little while to do is the softening of the dried shiitake mushrooms. I suggest you pre-prepare your shiitake mushrooms before doing this recipe so you can save about an hour of your time.

Ingredients for Stir-fried Shiitake Mushrooms:

  • Boiling Water
  • Shiitake Mushrooms
  • Mung Beans
  • Bok Choy
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Soy Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper for Seasoning

Instructions:

1.) Wash the mushrooms with water then soak the shiitake mushroom in 2 cups of boiled water for 1 hour. If you have already pre-soaked your mushrooms, skip this step.

2.) Place 1 1/2 cups of mung beans in a pot with 3 cups of water and 1 tbsp. of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook until tender for about 20-30 minutes.

3.) In a non-sticky frypan on medium heat, add the garlic and fry for about 20 seconds.

4.) Add the sliced mushrooms and soy sauce. Allow to cook for about 3-4 minutes.

5.) Turn the heat to medium-high and add the bok choy and mung beans to the pan and cover with a lid. Season with salt and pepper to taste. After a minute, gently flip the greens over and cook for another minute.

6.) Serve with or without rice.
