I am sure that at some time in our lives, we have casually invited a friend over for dinner, then realised that we did not have as much food in the fridge as we thought. This happened to me on Saturday… (Although it actually happens to me all the time…)
I thought I had plenty of risotto leftover from a large batch that I had made but nope! I had frozen half of it and eaten the rest so it was going to be PLAN B for dinner. The beauty of Plan B meals is that they really push our creative boundaries with cooking and sometimes we can make the most amazing recipes!
We can also make the weirdest thing that we have ever seen but I like to think positively and imagine that everything that I cook is freaking amazing!!
For my creative genius, I had some beautiful big portobello mushrooms, as well as some kale and cabbage. Coupled with a craving for sesame oil (because everyone gets those…right?), I made this crunchy asian kaleslaw to go on my mushroom burger.
Paired together, I had the delicious meaty flavour of the mushroom, followed by the delicate combination of sesame, lemon and soy to give an overall fresh flavour.
It can also hold its own and it is fantastic with some cooked edamame beans tossed through it.
