So I bought a package of mushroom balls the last time I was in an Asian supermarket, as part of my ‘try something new’ mantra. With no recipes or guides on the net, I thought sauteeing them in a little oil would do the trick. Whatever I did, I messed it up big-time, due to them turning into little rocks once I thought they looked cooked. I could barely get a fork into them!
Fake meat to the rescue! I rather like ersatz katsu sounds when you say it, and here’s how I made it: faux chicken nuggets, heated up so they’re cooked all the way through, placed next to a blend of sprouted grain brown and black wild rice, and with a generous helping of katsu sauce on top. Broccoli makes a nice filler and adds a pop of colour. Easy.
Cold tier: carrot slices, broccoli, grapes, and grape tomatoes. Little pick animals to perk the colour up a bit, et voila!
