IMG_1208smThis is a very tasty side vegetable with almost any protein, or even served simply over rice for a light dinner.

makes 2 servings

prep+cooking time: 5-7 minutes


2 Tbsp roasted sesame oil

6-8 fresh shiitake mushrooms (if using dried, re-hydrate for a few hours in warm water and squeeze the water out before using. Unlike some dried mushrooms, shiitake retain good texture once reconstituted.), woody stems removed and the caps sliced thinly

1 1-2” piece of ginger, grated finely

1 bunch (about 6 stalks) rainbow chard, wash and remove stalks and slice cross-wise like celery into 2 cm pieces. Loosely tear up the greens and keep separately.

Optional- 1 zucchini, thinly sliced

3 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce

3 green (spring) onions, sliced on the bias into thin ovals

optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds
