  • 250g shiitake mushrooms, chopped into small cubes
  • 1 block hard tofu, diced
  • 1 cup frozen green beans and carrots
  • 1/2 red onion, diced

  3. Add tofu, beans, and carrots with the vinegar and soy sauce.  Cook 3-5 minutes.  
  4. Add all the cooked grains to the frying pan and mix well.  Stir-fry 2-3 minutes.  Season. Turn the heat off.  
  5. In a small bowl, mix the fresh chopped parsley and minced garlic with a generous amount of extra-virgin olive oil.  Season.  
  6. Add some fresh pesto and a twist of lemon before serving.
