Mushrooms

Bok Choy with Fresh Shiitake

baby bok choy and shiitake mushrooms fuchsia dunlop every grain of riceShiitake mushrooms, commonly known in Chinese as “fragrant mushrooms,” have a rich, savory flavor that can enhance the taste of other foods, such as the fresh bok choy in this recipe. For an even more intense flavor, use dried shiitake mushrooms, which should be soaked in hot water for 30 minutes to soften. Rinse them, cover with fresh water, bring to a boil and simmer for at least 20 minutes with a dash of Shaoxing wine, some crushed ginger and spring onion and salt to taste. Leave them to steep in the liquid until you want them. Reprinted from Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking* by Fuchsia Dunlop. Copyright © 2012 by Fuchsia Dunlop.

Seitan and Mushrooms in Paprika Cream

I adore Paris. When I need to assuage my longing for this lovely city, I serve my family assiettes (referring to a generous platter of a number of components), like those typically served in the city’s vegetarian restaurants. The menus of these restaurants are not as extensive or innovative as those in the U.S. or Britain, but they do offer delicious, fresh food prepared with French flair. Seitan is a common offering. This one is an amalgam of seitan dishes I enjoyed at Le Potager du Marais near the Georges Pompidou Center, and Les Cinq Saveurs D’Ananda in the Latin Quarter. For tips on creating Parisian-style assiettes, see the sidebar, following.
