Wheat Noodles with Shiitake Mushroom

In addition, I’m very busy at this time and don’t have enough free time for cooking that’s so terrible. Today I think of the easy dish for my rush meal called noodles and I choose shiitake mushroom for improving the protein.

I’m interested in noodle for a long time because I can find the noodles in many countries with the variety menu especially for the wheat noodle which’s the Asian cuisine. Also, there are many different names of this noodle like Somen or Udon in Japan, Pasta in Italy and so on.

Shiitake Mushroom

Shiitake are often dried and sold as preserved food in packages. These must be rehydrated by soaking in water before using. Many people prefer dried shiitake to fresh, considering that the sun-drying process draws out the umami flavour from the dried mushrooms by breaking down proteins into amino acids and transforms ergosterol to vitamin D. The stems of shiitake are rarely used in Japanese and other cuisines, primarily because the stems are harder and take longer to cook than the soft fleshy caps. The highest grade of shiitake are called donko in Japanese.

Today, Shiitake mushrooms have become popular in many other countries as well. Russia produces and also consumes large amounts of them, mostly sold pickled; and the shiitake is slowly making its way into western cuisine as well. There is a global industry in shiitake production, with local farms in most western countries in addition to large scale importation from China, Japan, Korea and elsewhere.

The antiviral effects are believed to be caused by Shiitake's ability to produce interferon. Researchers have reported that consumption of Shiitake mushrooms lowers blood cholesterol levels by as much as 45 percent. The most dramatic results occurred when high-cholesterol foods were eaten simultaneously with Shiitake.

Because they can now be grown world wide, their availability is widespread and their price has decreased.
