Rescuing overroasted shiitakes?

yngvai | Apr 23, 201611:17 AM     4

Will be making a quinoa pilaf tomorrow and I wanted to do some pre-cooking.

Roasted shiitakes the same way I do regular white button mushrooms.

I should have cut the time and/or temperature down, because now I have a bunch of overcooked shiitakes, not burned but too dried out.

Is there anything I can do to salvage?

I was thinking of either:

a) chopping them up and soaking them in chicken broth - since I'm going to use broth for the liquid for the quinoa
or
b) grinding them to a powder, then putting THAT in the chicken broth

Will either of those work? Or is there something else I could do? (other than tossing them out and starting again)
