Spicy Black Mushroom Saute

Sautés offer a wide variety of meal options for vegetarians who like to vary the same recipe with different ingredients. This Asian-inspired recipe blends the exotic texture of the Chinese black fungus mushroom, also known as cloud ear or wood ear, with the tart flavor of Granny Smith apples for a sauté that is as hearty as it is light and flavorful.
