Per portion: 365 kJ / 87 kcal

  • 100 g shiitake mushrooms
  • 100 g king oyster mushrooms
  • 100 g button mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 50 ml Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
  • 100 ml sweet white wine
  • 3 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. potato starch
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 3 leeks
  • Salt
  • 1 apple
  • Sansyo pepper (or black pepper)
  • Chive rings


Preparation time: 35 mins

Trim the mushrooms and chop finely. Heat up 1 tbsp. vegetable oil in a pan and sauté the mushrooms. Add the soy sauce, wine and sugar and simmer until the liquid reduces slightly. Stir a little water into the starch and add it to the liquid with the sesame oil to bind the sauce.

Wash, trim and slice the leeks into wide diagonal slices. Heat up the remaining vegetable oil in a pan, fry the leeks on both sides and season with salt. Wash, halve and de-core the apple, then cut it into very fine strips.

Plate up the leek with the Japanese mushroom sauce, sprinkle with pepper and garnish with apple strips and chive rings.
