Dry Ingredients
2 cups + 1 tbsp (275g) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp corn starch
1/4 tsp salt

Yeast Mixture
3/4 cup warm soy milk
3 tsp organic cane sugar
1 tsp instant dry yeast
1 tbsp neutral oil, plus more for brushing

Pickled Carrots and Cucumber
1/3 cup thinly sliced carrot
1/3 cup thinly sliced cucumber
3 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp organic cane sugar, or adjust according to desired sweetness
1 tsp roasted sesame seeds
Pinch of salt

Hoisin Mushrooms
450g fresh mushrooms of choice (I used a mix of king oyster and shiitake)
1 tsp minced garlic
Oil for cooking
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
4 tbsp maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener or sugar (adjust according to desired sweetness)
1/4 tsp chinese five spice powder or pepper

Other Fillings and Toppings
Vegan Kimchi (homemade recipe here)
Chopped roasted peanuts
Chopped spring onions

STEPS
Pickled Carrots and Cucumber
Discard the seeds and pit of the cucumber. Peel the carrot. Very thinly slice the cucumber and carrots.

In a bowl, mix together the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Mix well until the sugar dissolves. Adjust seasoning based on desired sweetness and sourness.

Add in the cucumber and carrots. Mix well and leave to sit for 10-15 minutes. You can prepare this the day before and refrigerate it until ready to use. This way itโ€™s also more flavourful!

Hoisin Mushrooms
Slice the mushrooms into strips or batons.

Heat a non-stick pan. Heat some oil over medium heat. Once hot, add in the garlic. Sautรฉ until lightly brown and then add in the mushrooms. Pour in the hoisin sauce and maple syrup or other sweetener. Mix well and cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked through and release some water. Sprinkle chinese five spice or pepper and mix well. Turn off heat and set aside.
