Here’s an easy, tasty spin on an old Japanese classic, sukiyaki. It’s a one-pot solution for both busy family weeknights and parties – all you need is some rice to go with it. You can even cook it at the table on a portable burner, and keep adding ingredients to it as people take from the pot. And imagine – with no oil added and lots of veggies, it’s a nutrient-packed, low-fat meal.

12 ounces shiiitake mushrooms, left whole with stems removed or cut in half
