Pan fried Celery & Shimeji with Bonito flakes.

Pan fried celery and shimeji mushrooms with bonito flakes by kurumicooks delicious easy to make healthy Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking for your litchen

Here's a big question for you. Are food likes and dislikes inherited or based on the environment? The reason I ask is that both my husband and I love celery and mushrooms but our sons won't touch either and remove them from their plate with a grimace whenever I serve them up. How did this happen? Answers, please!

Anyway, today's dish is one I make when I'm cooking for one or two. I like celery when it is lightly fried and pairing it with shimeji mushrooms and bonito flakes transforms the flavour into something really quite complex. So, this is a healthy and very tasty way to get 2 of your 5-a-day (or two of your 13-a-day if you follow Japanese guidelines!)

If you would like to give this recipe a try, you can find the written recipe just below and you can find the Youtube tutorial by clicking Pan fried Celery and Shimeji or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.

If like me, you love your mushrooms, why not try a mushroom salad with a Japanese twist like my 3 mushroom salad with a ponzu dressing? You can find the recipe for that dish here.
