5 cups Vegetarian Konbu Dashi Stock
11/4 ounces dried shiitake mushrooms
1 teaspoon caster sugar
pinch of sea salt
Add Vegetarian Konbu Dashi Stock to a pan until hot but not boiling, then remove from the heat.
Add the shiitake mushrooms, sugar and salt to the hot konbu dashi and let them soak for 2–4 hours. Remove the mushrooms, reserving them for another recipe.
Strain the dashi into a bowl avoiding any sediment or grit from the bottom of the pan.
The dashi will keep in the fridge for a few days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
