Grilled Hen of the Woods Mushrooms with Ginger-Soy Vinaigrette
Grilled hen of the woods with a zippy ginger vinaigrette.
By themselves, a 4-6 ounce cluster will feed a person as a vegetarian entree. Serve these with a little steamed rice (or wild rice), extra vinaigrette on the side, sliced scallions, chopped cilantro, and toasted sesame seeds. Serves 2.
