Omnomnom… hearty tempeh and mushroom filling in a piece of crunchy cabbage with some spicy peanut sauce to the side… sign me up!

This makes about 4-5 servings.

  • Filling
    • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 10-15 shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, trumpet mushrooms, shimeiji mushrooms, take your pick. Or you can have a boring portabella mushroom cap… Dice the mushrooms.
