Step 1
Gently rinse the Dried Shiitake Mushroom (40 gram) to remove the dust on the surface. Transfer into a bowl and cover with 2-inches Water (to taste). Soak until the mushrooms turn completely tender, 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Step 2
Rinse the mushrooms in the soaking water by gently rubbing the caps with your fingers. Squeeze out extra liquid and transfer the mushrooms to a cutting board. Let the mushroom-soaking water sit for 10 minutes. Slice the mushrooms into thin pieces.
Step 3
Heat Peanut Oil (2 tablespoon) in a medium size pan over medium heat until warm. Add shiitake mushrooms. Cook and stir until both sides turns golden, 3 to 5 minutes.
Step 4
Add finely grated Fresh Ginger (1 teaspoon) and finely minced Garlic (2 clove). Cook and stir for another minute. Transfer everything into a food processor.
Step 5
Add 1 cup of the reserved mushroom-soaking liquid to the food processor. Puree until smooth. Return everything into the fry pan.
Step 6
Add Light Soy Sauce (1 tablespoon), Dark Soy Sauce (1 tablespoon), Miso Paste (2 teaspoon), Agave Syrup (1 teaspoon) and Chinese Five Spice Powder (1/4 teaspoon) in a small bowl. Whisk until the miso paste has dissolved completely. Pour into the frying pan and stir to mix well.
Step 7
Cook over low heat until the sauce is brought to a gentle simmer and is thick enough to coat a spoon. If the sauce turns too dry, add a few more spoons of the mushroom-soaking water.
Step 8
Remove the pan from stove, add Dark Toasted Sesame Oil (2 teaspoon), and stir to mix well. Transfer to a big bowl to cool.
Step 9
Once the sauce has cooled down completely, transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up for 1 week or in the freezer for 2 months.
