Grilling Shiitake mushrooms that have been marinated in a maple-tamari sauce only ups the umami factor in an already deeply flavorful vegetable. Plus, the mushrooms then become versatile ingredients: try using them as a topping for grilled naan, serving them in a salad with somen noodles and Asian greens, or folding them into a warm grain salad. If you don’t have a grill, you can broil these Grilled Maple-Tamari Shiitakes from Simple Green Suppers on a baking sheet. Choose the largest Shiitake caps you can find; smaller ones can fall through grill grates or overcook.
