Spicy Forest Mushrooms ( Lap Hed )


This is a great meat-free dish to eat with sticky rice. In Thailand we make everything with fish sauce, even vegetarian meals, however if you can use salt if you prefer. It is best to use fresh forest mushrooms such as shitake or rovellons for this dish rather than dried.

150 gms Fresh Mushrooms
1 Tablespoons Chopped Spring Onion
2 Tablespoons Chopped Coriander Leaves
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce (Use pinch of salt for vegetarians)
1 Tablespoon Toasted Sticky Rice
2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoons Flaked Dried Chillies
1 Tablespoon Chopped Mint Leaves

1. Clean the mushrooms and grill for 4 minutes.
2. Chop the mushrooms into tiny pieces.
3. Add the fish sauce, lemon juice, flaked chilli, toasted rice, chopped coriander, chopped spring onion and mint leaves, then mix together.
4. That's it, this is a very simple way to eat mushrooms.
