Isa’s Mushroom Hot Pot and Lettuce Wraps

Don’t worry, this is still a ginger post! We borrowed Isa’s new Mushroom Hot Pot recipe and this delicious Lettuce Wraps recipe from the Veggie Converter.

We followed the lettuce wrap instructions with minimal changes. We reduced the agave and soy sauce, and subbed tiny pan-fried tofu cubes instead of seitan. (Yes, actual size was cute x cute.) This was SO GOOD. If you’re soy-free, try diced, pan-fried mushrooms, or maybe even jackfruit?

The soup turned out really well, with lots of surprising flavors in every bite. We used tons of cremini mushrooms and some veggie broth instead of the mushroom broth, and not as much coconut milk (full-fat) instead of the 1 can of reduced fat. We also ditched the bell pepper, added extra tomato, and extra red pepper flakes. For the mix-ins, we used what we had on hand: fresh cilantro, green onions, mung bean sprouts, and grated jicama. And of course, lots of extra lime juice in each bowl. The jicama gave the soup a similar mouthfeel to rice noodles, for an added heartiness!
