Story Behind this Recipe

I got some requests for easier ways to make big batches of cooked vegetables to use in other dishes, so I came up with this. It's really convenient to buy lots of mushrooms and marinate them since you'll have them on hand.
Of course, these are good in pasta or salads. They're really good for kenchin soups or simmered dishes too!
