Shiitake Mushrooms have been given credit for boosting the immune system.
Next time you eat dinner at home
Roast 4 shitake
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Rinse mushrooms and dry
Leave on stems
Small to medium iron skillet
Do not over crowd
Drizzle 4 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil over the shiitake, stems up and the caps flat to the skillet

Add a sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary or skip it
Roast about 8 to 10 minutes or until brown and crispy.
The stems are too tough to eat but use them as a handle.
