Crews, I love shiitakes, and do a soup very similar to this -
Suggestion - take a few extra shiitakes, marinate them in some oil, s/p, and whatever herb you're liking that day, 'grill' them lightly in a hot skillet, slice in strips when cool, and use as garnish. Yummer!
LOL - Do NOT misspell 'shiitake', folks, if you're responding to this topic!
