Some mornings I can’t quite muster up the energy for pancakes or something more involved than eggs & toast. It’s days like that where the simplest additions like wild mushrooms will go such a long way (for your meal and your mood.) Besides having that famous umami flavor that will transform any dish, Maitake mushrooms are a nutritional powerhouse. I doubt you’ll even notice how healthy this is, because it tastes too good to care. Perfect for slow mornings on slow weekends when you need a special touch.
