Quick shiitake stock
Easy shiitake stock
6-8 dried shiitake mushrooms
3-4 cups of water
Add mushrooms and water to a soup pot. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Strain stock through a coffee filter or fine mesh sieve. Allow to cool before refrigerating. Freeze for later use, if you'd like.
For porcini stock: No cooking needed. Soak the mushrooms overnight, then pour the stock through a filter. Bring to a gentle boil, when ready to use.
