Love shiitake mushrooms?

This dish is the meatiest plant based dish one could possibly conjure.

It’s a minimalist approach that allows mushrooms to shine brightly. The shitakes are so simple to cook but with such depth of umami flavour and the fleshy texture is enough to satisfy any carnivore.

You can forage for your own garlic to use between December and June - and you can replace it with wild garlic as well.
