Cooking show host and food writer Jo Pratt has a new collection of vegetarian recipes out that will revitalize your repertoire and impress your dining guests. From the traditional to the brand-new, there’s a recipe in here for every lover of vegetables at the table. This tea-smoked mushroom ramen will breathe new life into your noodle game. 

Smoking your own ingredients is great fun and very versatile. You don’t have to own any fancy kit, just a wok lined with foil, as well as the round wire/steaming rack that sits inside. Otherwise a medium, heavy-based roasting tray will do the job. These smoked mushrooms can be used in a variety of dishes such as risotto, salads and pasta, as well as this ramen – satisfying soul food at its best. It may look like a lengthy recipe, but it’s really straightforward with very little effort needed.
