Garlic, Chilli + Lemon Mushroom Scallops

Mushroom Scallops

Difficulty: Easy Makes 24 (approx.) Before I went vegetarian, I wasn't a huge fan of seafood unless it had the heck fried out of it and that has somewhat carried onto my feelings around mock seafood. If it's too fishy tasting, I ain't gonna go near it, fam. Despite that I have always wanted to do a scallop recipe with king oyster mushrooms ever since I knew it was a thing, however I could never bloody track some down. Luckily for me, on a recent trip to Sydney I found a stack of king oyster mushrooms at an Asian grocery and was pumped to finally realise my scallopy dream! My fave thing about this recipe is that not only is it quick and easy but it makes...

Pan-Fried “Beef” and Enoki Mushroom Dumplings

Difficulty: Easy-Medium Makes 16 Since making my first dumplings a month or so ago, I've been itching to make more. I decided to bung a mock meat in this batch as well as pan-frying instead of steaming. You're more than welcome to steam them if you'd like though and they're not going to be any less delish.

Tempeh and Basil Mushrooms

Difficulty: Easy-Medium Serves Two Often cooking delicious means cooking unhealthy. Lately I've been experimenting with some healthier dishes so that every time I cook it doesn't also mean a calorie fest. I don't mean celery and carrot sticks kind of healthy, just wholesome and tasty dishes that are better for me. Tempeh is high in fibre and protein, mushrooms are also high in protein as well as potassium so why not combine the two and make a super meal? Ingredients 1/3 cup kecap bango 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon minced ginger 4 large mushrooms 1 small red onion, finely chopped 1 small red capsicum, chopped A handful of fresh basil, chopped 1 packet of tempeh, cut into cubes 4 teaspoons Sour Supreme Method Combine kecap bango, garlic and ginger in a bowl and...
