In Sri Lanka you can find several varieties of mushrooms. When you mix mushrooms with vegetables you get a great flavour, inspiring me to create this hearty vegetarian dish. It has become a firm favourite among my friends and family, and I hope you enjoy it too.
250g mushrooms (cleaned and cut)
100g onion (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 leek (washed and chopped)
200g broccoli (parboiled)
150g brussels sprouts (clean and par boiled)
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs crushed chilli flakes
Heat the oil in a pan, add the garlic, onion, and chilli. Cook until golden brown, then add the mushrooms and cook until soft. Then add the other vegetables and mix well. Check the seasoning then remove from the heat. Make sure not to overcook the green vegetables so they keep their crunchiness and nutritional content. You can serve this dish with rice or bread.
