  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon thinly sliced fresh chili pepper
  • 12 ounces mushrooms, (any combination of shiitake, oyster and beech)
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced (don't skip, it's not just for garnish, it's required to contrast the sweet and sour flavors of the mushrooms)


  • Cut the stems off of the mushrooms and cut the mushroom caps roughly in half.
  • Whisk rice vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, honey, oil and chili pepper together in a bowl.
  • Pour the marinade over the mushrooms, stir around a few times to coat everything, then let the mix sit for 10 minutes.

  • Drain the mushrooms, then spread them out on a baking sheet and roast until tender (15-20 minutes).
  • Sprinkle with green onion slices and serve.
