  • cooking hob


  • 1 cup button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped baby tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/3 tsp chili
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp Shoyu naturally fermented soy sauce you can use liquid aminos
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • Bunch of parsley - minced
  • 1 garlic clove - optional
  • 1 portion spelt spaghetti
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil1 tsp ume su optional


  • Cook the spaghetti 
    Sauté spices and mushrooms on olive oil (and minced garlic if using), season with salt.
  • Sauté until slightly browned and fragrant, then add tomatoes and Shoyu.
  • Keep sautéing for 2-3 minutes until veggies are soft.
  • Add toasted sesame oil (for the added smokiness) and parsley.
  • Mix in spaghetti.
  • At this point I like adding a little bit more of olive oil for the taste.
  • Check and season if needed with more salt.


  • When cooking on extra virgin olive oil, start with a cool pan, add olive oil and spices and then put it on a flame. This is to avoid the oil burning up
  • You can sub the mushrooms with zucchini or eggplant. It will be a bit different but amazing. I also love adding some vegan cheese in this zucchini or eggplant version (or dairy if you eat dairy, goat preferably).
  • Use any shape of pasta and for gluten free version you can use rice, corn or quinoa ones.
