Veg-swaps are a health trend that is here to stay and offer a great way to replace carbohydrates in your recipes, which is useful if you’re trying to lose weight.  The bright colours in this dish mean you’re getting a great supply of valuable phytonutrients, which are pigments in plants that may help to protect the body from diseases such as those of the heart.  Shiitake mushrooms contain beta-glucan polysaccharides that have been shown to help enhance the immune system as well as vitamin D, which is lacking in many peoples diets, especially during the winter months.

Tamari is a gluten-free alternative to soy sauce and has a lovely rich flavour adding depth to the dish.  If you don’t eat meat then try adding a legume or pulse such as chickpeas or soya beans, which will add protein to the dish.  You could also throw in a handful of nuts such as cashews, pumpkin seeds or lentil sprouts for a little crunch. Furikake is a Japanese blend of sesame seeds and seaweed, which add an umami flavour to the dish as well as a source of iodine.
