This yummy recipe is easy and low in carbs. I use white mushrooms, but I assume shiitake would work just as well. If you're like me and can eat the same thing every day, it makes great lunches for a whole week. Keeps very well in the fridge. I slice up a sweet red bell pepper for a side dish, and top off with a glass of cranberry juice.
