Just bought some dried ground shiitake mushrooms. I wondering in what ways to use the dried ground mushrooms to create more flavor in dishes.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Like whole dried mushrooms, i am guessing the powder needs some warm liquid to bring out its flavor- before it is added to dishes? Then it could be added to anything you like shiitakes for: soups, sauces, stir fries, risotto. I have read of chefs who coat fish filets w/ it before sauteeing......
Thank you...great suggestion

Adding to Le Bec Fin's suggestion I would use the water you reconstitute the mushrooms into the risotto for added flavor.
I was thinking of using a coffee filter and warm water to extract the flavor. Thanks for the idea!

I LOVE using dried, ground mushrooms in rubs. I just blitz it in a coffee grinder with other spices like coriander, black mustard, pepper, etc. and rub it on beef and pork. I think it works better with heartier meats, but I've never tried it on chicken/fish. It's also really amazing in braises/stews. It's like concentrated mushroom power.
Dried mushroom powder can be gritty.Reconstitute to get a nice dark liquid, then filter the grit out.
