Sticky BBQ Mushroom Donburi

Sticky gochujang BBQ mushrooms with rice, mixed slaw, edamame and homemade vegan kimchi, combine to make this delicious Asian-fusion rice bowl.

A deliciously nourishing bowl, full of flavour and texture. Simply fry off the mushrooms and toss in the deliciously sticky gochujang BBQ sauce, thinly shred the veg and toss together to make a fresh slaw. Serve up with sesame edamame, fresh rice and vegan kimchi.
