Also as a vegetarian you sometimes want to have that ‘steak-feeling’ when having your dinner – so why not make a vegetarian steak? You can get a broad range of vegetarian ‘meat’ from tofu or corn these days, but I personally don’t really like this stuff, so I tend to make my steaks from vegetables – like from mushrooms. Believe me, nothing can beat them!
- 2 tablespoons of soya sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of paprika powder
- 2 large flat mushrooms (sometimes sold as ‘portobello mushrooms’)
- 50g rice
- 100g peas
- 100ml vegetable stock
- vegetable oil
If you’re hungry enough, heat the vegetable stock in a small pot and add the rice when it’s boiling. After 5 minutes, add the peas and boil them for another 7-10 minutes with the rice. In the meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan and gently roast the mushroom steaks for about 5-6 minutes on both sides. Serve with the rice and peas.
The Uni Cookbook fan Annegret from Munich has send me this lovely picture of this dish – as you can see, she has added some onions to the rice and peas. Thanks a lot Annegret!
