“I made this up earlier when I really wanted oyster mushrooms. I don't like to cook them with too many strong flavors, since their own flavor is so delicate. I just had this over rice noodles for a snack, but you could serve it as a side dish, too, or add other veggies and protein of choice to make it a main dish. Prep/cooking time and all quantities are educated guesstimates. For vegetarians, try my mock fish sauce Vegetarian "fish" Sauce for Asian Cooking, it's what I use and it's tasty :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together the fish sauce, rice vinegar, and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Put the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the lemongrass and ginger and stir-fry for about 30 seconds (it will smell heavenly). Add the mushrooms and stir-fry until slightly softened, 3 or 4 minutes. You want them still moist and not browned.
  3. Add the sauce and stir-fry until absorbed, 30 seconds or so. Garnish with the scallion and sesame seeds and serve.
