Mushrooms lovers will love this vegetarian variation of the Taiwanese three cups chicken recipe of three cups mushrooms (三杯菇), using fresh shiitake mushrooms. I have leftover sweet basil leaves and decided to cook a three cups dish. Since we just had the chicken version a week ago, I made a meatless variation this time.

See Also:

“Three Cups” refers to the trio combination of sesame oil, soy sauce and Chinese wine, but it does not mean using one cup each of the condiment – rather, equal parts (1:1:1) of each depending on the quantity you are cooking. The 1:1:1 formula is flexible too, for example, I always use less soy sauce with more Chinese wine and sesame oil. The mushrooms cook quickly (about 5 minutes of simmering), so this is a great side dish on busy nights. Three cups dishes are traditionally cooked in a claypot, but you can always use a regular wok or pan if you do not have one.

    did you soak the mushroom overnight? How come they look so plump and juicy?

      Hi Jenny, nope. They are fresh mushrooms so no soaking required, I used straight away.
