Traditionally, this spicy sour Thai salad would be made with pork or chicken. For this vegan recipe, however, we are using cauliflower and shiitake mushrooms as a base, which gives the dish an umami flavour.

To soften the mushrooms

Soften the mushrooms in warm water for approx. 15 mins. Set aside 4 tbsp of the mushroom water. Drain and roughly chop the mushrooms.


Whisk the lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and reserved mushroom water with the sugar until the sugar has fully dissolved.


Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the cauliflower, shallot, garlic, lemongrass, chilli and kaffir lime leaf, stir fry for approx. 5 mins. until the vegetables are just soft. Add the mushrooms, stir fry for a further 2 mins. Remove the pan from the heat. Pour in the dressing. Roughly chop half of the herbs, add with the spring onion, mix, season.

To serve

Plate up the Larb with the cucumber and the remainder of the herbs. Scatter the peanuts on top, serve with the lime.
