I'm sure it'll probably be considered blasphemous, but when preparing this recipe, I left out the mushrooms [other than eating them fresh, I really don't like the slimy little creatures!]. I did, however, add some carrots & cauliflower, & the end result was very, very satisfying! Thanks for this shared recipe!
This turned out so yummy! I used coconut oil and a splash of toasted sesame oil for cooking. I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes to give it a tiny bit of heat which was key for me. I also added just a bit of carrot and red bell pepper to the veggie mix and added green onion at the very end. I served this with fried tofu and precooked brown rice...and it was really delicious! This will be my new go to stir fry recipe.

I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
