Shitake mushrooms with basil leaves

Most mushrooms are rich in protein, fiber, B and C vitamins and calcium and also some other minerals. Shitake mushrooms along with maitake and reishi mushrooms are considered as medicinal mushrooms and have shown to boost heart health, lower the risk of cancer, promote immune function, ward off viruses, bacteria and fungi, reduce inflammation, combat allergies, help balance blood sugar levels and support the body's detoxification mechanisms. There are so many ways to consume these mushrooms. Most people add mushrooms to salads but I like shitake mushrooms cooked with basil leaves from my own garden.

Ingredients:
1 packet shitake mushrooms
A bunch of basil leaves
A little olive oil
A little ginger strips
A little oyster sauce for taste
Method:
1. Fry ginger in a little olive oil
2. Add in shitake mushrooms and fry for 2 minutes.
3. Add a little water and simmer for one minute
4. Lastly add in basil leaves and a little oyster sauce and off the flame.
5. Serve immediately.
