This is another Vegan option for my readers who have gone totally Vegan. It's a festival of mushrooms sauteed, Japanese Style, usually with a Teriyaki Sauce and shrimp paste.
This is another Vegan option for my readers who have gone totally Vegan. It’s a festival of mushrooms sauteed, Japanese Style, usually with a Teriyaki Sauce and shrimp paste. However, my version is completely plant-based without the shrimp paste and the Teriyaki Sauce. You can always add in shrimp paste or fish stock for the sauce and thicken it with cornstarch slurry. This recipe is very easy to cook, you’ll love it, especially if you love mushrooms.
