One of my favorite banchans, or Korean side dishes, are these shiitake mushrooms. Get ready to fall in love with their earthy and meaty flavors as well as chewy texture.
12-14 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in warm water for about 30 minutes, or until softened
2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon oil (I used coconut)
1/2 green onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoon sesame oil
Season with salt, to taste
