Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Brown rice. TIPS: • You can use any combination of Asian mushrooms, such as oyster, shiitake, enoki and shimeji. • To toast cashews, toss them in a small non-stick frying pan over high heat for 1–2 minutes or until lightly toasted. • Black bean sauces come in a variety of strengths and consistencies and can be quite salty. If you haven’t used that brand before, add according to taste.
