  • 1 whole serrano or jalapeno chili If you like it spicy
  • 1/4 tsp fish sauce Dulse flakes are a great vegan substitute

Instructions
 

  • Finely dice the ginger, turmeric, chili pepper (optional) and garlic. Saute these with oil and sliced mushrooms in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes.
