A delightful nutritious, vegan, high-protein, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free (if tamari sauce is used) Asian dish that can be easily prepared for a quick but tasty and filling meal.
Dice up the washed fresh Shiitake mushrooms and other ingredients. (If using dry Shiitake mushrooms, soak these first in very hot water for an hour or until fully soft. Then wash well under cold running water before dicing the rehydrated mushrooms up. For more details, read here.)
To make this recipe oil-free, use a bit of vegetable broth instead of the oil to sauté the garlic, onions and lentils.
If you don't have Shiitake mushrooms on hand, you can substitute the mushrooms with white button mushrooms or Cremini mushrooms.
