I just love mushrooms, they are one of my "good Yin" foods .
Here I use oyster mushrooms, straw mushrooms, enoki mushrooms and wood ears to make a delcious stew. Just cut all the mushrooms, fry them with some onion, ginger and grated carrot, and once fried, add some water and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, add some arrowroot and your favorite seasoning and it is done. 
Mushrooms decrease  the fat and cholesterol in your blood and eliminate mucus for the respiratory system; they increase white blood cell count, thereby improving immunity. They have a strong effect against tumors and cancer.
Long-term vegans should use all mushrooms sparingly. Mushrooms should never be eaten raw.
They are great in stews, soups or for stuffing the cabbage spring rolls.
