1-inch piece of ginger, grated
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup for a vegan option
2 green onions, sliced diagonally

Sauté and Sizzle: Heat vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add the sliced shiitake mushrooms and sauté until they start to brown, releasing their rich, nutty aroma.
Flavor Infusion: Stir in minced garlic and grated ginger, letting them sizzle and infuse the mushrooms with their aromatic magic.
Soy Symphony: Pour in the soy sauce and drizzle the sesame oil over the mushrooms, creating a flavorful symphony that coats each slice with a savory umami essence.
Sweet Harmony: Add honey or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness that perfectly balances the savory notes. Stir well to ensure the mushrooms are evenly coated.
Crunchy Perfection: Continue to stir-fry until the shiitake mushrooms are tender yet maintain a delightful, satisfying crunch. This will only take a few minutes, so keep an eye on them.
Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle sliced green onions and sesame seeds over the stir-fry, adding a burst of freshness and a hint of nuttiness. Serve immediately over a bed of steamed rice or your favorite noodles.
