Cook's Notes

To clean the mushrooms, simply wipe the caps with a damp paper towel; do not rinse, as they will become soggy. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden.

    This was easy and tasty. Next time I'll toss it with soba noodles and a bit more sesame oil for a meal.
