Spice Roasted Shiitake Mushroom Medley

While they may cost more than ordinary mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms are worth the price thanks to their amazing taste and texture. For this recipe, the shiitakes are roasted until delightfully crispy and delicious with a variety of other vegetables from cauliflower to tomatoes. But these aren’t just ordinary, everyday roasted vegetables--for this recipe, the vegetables are even more delectable thanks to a flavor packed spice rub and a tasty soy glaze. “Deglazing” the roasted vegetables may seem a little strange but it really amplifies the taste of the dish yet requires minimal effort.
