This modern stir-fry comes with a real treat: fresh shiitake mushrooms. Like other varieties of wild mushrooms, these have been around since prehistoric times—and they’re a culinary treasure today. Though they’re delicious when dried, shiitakes are truly extraordinary when fresh, with robust texture as well as flavor. We’re cooking them here with vegetables, red rice, browned tofu and a complex hoisin-soy sauce.
