food painting for the vegetarian cookbook by Fiona Morgan
Light. Quick. Easy. Delicate.


Food painting artwork

30x30cm watercolour, pencil and graphite on canvas. It's very delicate and subtle, just like the enoki mushrooms themselves.

By the way, all the food painting artwork is available to own in the Official Art Store.


The meatless meals recipe

Enoki mushrooms, in case you haven't tried them, are a bit like the mushroom equivalent of noodles. They are easily found in asian grocers and are quite delicate little 'shrooms, in looks and in taste.
This recipe is another super quick one to cook. And as a bonus, it can work as a soup or as a meal in itself.

splosh sesame oil
100g enoki mushrooms
75g smoked tofu or similar, cut into thin slices or cubes
6 cups or 1.5L vegetable stock
2 cups chopped leafy greens (approx 100g)
2 spring onions, cut fine
soy sauce, white pepper and salt to taste

To make this into a meal, cook enough ramen noodles for two ready to add at the end.

So, saute the enoki mushrooms in the sesame oil for a few minutes to give them some extra flavour.
Then add the smoked tofu and saute a little as well.
Finally, add the stock and chopped greens and boil for a few minutes.
Serve into bowls (already filled with hot cooked noodles if you're making a meal instead of a soup), adding the spring onion on top.
Season with soy sauce, white pepper and salt to taste.

Makes two big bowls.
