  2. Next add the vegetable stock and 5 tbsp soy sauce and leave to simmer on a low heat.
  3. Tofoo time. Slice it up and cover in soy sauce and olive oil and add to a pan. Allow it char on either side. Set it aside.
  4. Add your mushrooms to the pan and allow them to soak up the soy sauce from the Tofoo.

  6. Finally, garnish with chopped chilli, mint, coriander and basil. Then tuck in!
