We use dry shiitake mushrooms in many different dishes:

We soak them in water for ten minutes, until soft and then add them into soup, vegetable dishes, stews, etc.

We use shiitake to make a tea that help to reduce fever, dissolve animal fat and relax the body.

Here is the recipe:

Shiitake Mushroom Tea


  • 1 medium shiitake mushroom, soaked and cut into peaces

  • 1 cup of filtered water

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
