Kimi's Warming Winter Lunch with Matcha Dressing
Our dear friend Kimi from Konsicous London created a twist on one of her favourite warming winter dishes by using our matcha in the dressing. We love the combination of salty, bitter and sweet - perfect to add flavour to your favourite vegetable or salad. In this recipe we use King trumpet mushrooms (its all about the thick, meaty stem on this jumbo mushroom that serves as a great meat substitute in this asian inspired plant-based dish!), sweet potatoes and Bok Choy.
