I have been buying Annie’s brand of Shiitake Sesame Vinaigrette for years. I ran out the other day and was absolutely craving it! The combination of Apple cider vinegar, smooth sesame oil, and the earthiness of the shiitake mushrooms keeps me coming back bottle after bottle! So, in the spirit of making things homemade & saving some money I decided to try and make my own. The result was extremely exciting!
Here are my ingredients.
I chopped up the shiitakes, toasted the sesame seeds until golden brown, and held them to the side.
I then combined the rest of the ingredients into a blender and lightly pulsed about three or four times.
After blending I added the mushrooms and sesame seeds, poured the mixture into a Mason jar and refrigerated. Super simple recipe, took only a few minutes, saved some money, and tastes amazing! I probably won’t ever buy it bottled again (sorry Annie!! 😋).
4 fresh shiitake mushrooms, chopped. (About 1/3 cup)
2 tbs. sesame seeds, toasted.
1 cup Grapeseed oil.
1/2 cup Apple Cider vinegar.
3 tbs. Tamari (soy sauce).
3 tbs. Sesame oil.
