Vegan Nikujaga Recipe (ビーガン肉じゃが) with Maitake Mushrooms

It’s also one of the best plant-based sources of Vitamin D. Eryngi mushrooms, which are also known as “King Trumpet,” although they don’t have much going on in the flavor department, they have a thick fibrous stem that allows them to mimic all sorts of meat and seafood depending on how they’re sliced. Like any stew, there’s a lot of room for improvisation in this dish, and I sometimes like to add things like tomatoes, kabocha, sweet potatoes, burdock, or parsnips. Heat a pot over high heat until hot and then add the vegetable oil, onions, maitake mushrooms, and Eryngi mushrooms and stir-fry until the mushrooms just start to brown. Add the dashi stock, along with the konbu and then add the microwaved potatoes and carrots, as well as the shirataki noodles and give the mixture a stir to combine.
