  • 5 ounce shitake mushrooms (about 6), thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp lapsong tea or smoky black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Toss and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

On a parchment lined half sheet pan, bake the strips for 25-20 minutes, flipping occasionally. Remove from the oven and drain on a paper towel, allowing to cool completely. As they cool, they will become crispy.

Toss over salads, soups or even build your own BLT!
