HEN OF THE WOODS (MAITAKE)

HEALTH BENEFITS: Maitake is popular for its ability to promote good health and treat a wide variety of diseases. Maitake mushroom benefits include boosting the immune system, helping to lower blood pressure, fighting cancer cells, regulating blood sugar, and dropping cholesterol levels.

FLAVOR PROFILE: Maitake mushrooms develop a deep umami flavor that is both earthy and slightly nutty. This unique characteristic makes them a versatile ingredient in various culinary creations. Their robust flavor pairs exceptionally well with ingredients like garlic, soy sauce, and herbs like thyme and rosemary. Delicious in soups, stews, pasta dishes, ramen, casseroles, sauces, and sautés.

HOW TO ENJOY MAITAKE MUSHROOMS:
* Sauteed or Stir-Fried: Cook them in butter or olive oil over medium heat until tender and slightly browned. Use as a side dish or add them to salads, rice (risotto), or your favorite type of pasta. 
* Roasted: Roasting maitake mushrooms enhances their flavor and creates a delightful texture. Toss the mushrooms with olive oil, garlic, and herbs, then spread them out on a baking sheet and roast in the oven until golden brown and crispy at the edges.
* Grilled: Maitake mushrooms are excellent for grilling. Simply brush them with oil and season with salt and pepper. Then grill them until tender and slightly charred.
