Spicy Forest Mushrooms ( Lap Hed )


This is a great meat-free dish to eat with sticky rice. In Thailand we make everything with fish sauce, even vegetarian meals, however if you can use salt if you prefer. It is best to use fresh forest mushrooms such as shitake or rovellons for this dish rather than dried.
