Recipe Directions

Mushroom Steak

  • Mix oil, Nama Shoyu, cardamom, garlic, Ume plum in a bowl and blend well.
  • Slice the mushrooms into thin slices and dip each mushroom slice into the sauce, covering both sides. Let marinate 20 minutes while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

Veggies

  • Mix all the vegetables in a bowl. Drain the marinade from the mushrooms and toss it with the vegetables.

Cheeze

  • Blend all Cheeze ingredients in a blender until creamy.
  • Put together your Herb-Encrusted Mushroom Steak by first placing some marinated mushrooms on a plate, top with the vegetables and then spread a few spoons of the Cheeze on top. Mmm good.

Keeps for 2 days in the refrigerator.

Variations: Layer the ingredients into a romaine lettuce leaf, Swiss chard leaf, cabbage leaf cup or bok choy leaf. Or you could serve it on Pizza Crust bread. The recipe could also be made without the Cheeze.

I found the cardamom a bit "odd" in this dish and didn't really care for it because of that. I think I will try it again with the tarragon. But otherwise it was certainly filling.

Some changes I made were that I omitted the ume (I didn't have any) and I warmed the dish in the dehydrator first for an hour.

This is unbelievable! My kids weren't that interested in it, and I would have to say it is certainly a grown up dish. But if you are in need of an impressive, heary meal for adults - this is it! Fantastic!! Thank you!

This is awesome! It's great in a sandwich with napa cabbage.

The herb marinade is fantastic, really give the mushrooms a "steak like" flavor and aroma.

Wow, this tasted great! I'm new to raw and absolutely new to mushrooms, and this has me hooked! I didn't have the umeboshi plum, so I used a tablespoon of sun-dried currants and ran them with the rest of the sause through a processor. I had to use other raw veggies for the veggie side, and I decided to use the cheez with those instead of the shroom steak. Thank you again, kandace, for my first real raw dinner:-)

This was amazing, it tastes and feels like a steak, only better with no cruelty! I had umeboshi plum paste so I used a tablespoon of that instead and it was great!

I didn't get the ume plum (very expensive), but made it with the rest of the ingredients. It is delicious--I will definitely make it again.

kundalalita: No dehydrating necessary. The 20 minutes of marinating does the trick.

ohhh, wait what? you put it in the dehydrator? hmm yea im having trouble figuring it out too, but Regardless that what i made didn't really turn out like the pic (my mushrooms were very wet,slimy and covered with the sauce, ending up extremely salty, and i think i used the wrong kind of shrooms too!)... it still tasted very deliciossooo!!! another one even cooked fooders love!

for my cheese i used pine nuts, cashews, some sunflower seeds, and something inspired me to add like 10-15 raisins... i'm glad i did cuz it came out great, and really balanced out the saltiness!

Ooooh! NOW I GET IT! It's actually just a portobello mushroom cut in half...! I was having a hard time trying to figure out ow the hell you got the texture so right, and how I was offing over how long it had to sit in the dehydrator for... This looks SO GOOD! I'm making it sometime soooooon!

One of my first raw recipes. A little salty, but definitely a keeper. Once I tweak this, it will surely become a recipe I share with my non raw friends.

I made this last week for dinner. I forgot the cumin powder and didn't have an Ume plum, but it still tasted great. The Cheeze blends perfectly with the other flavors. Next time I'll just have to find some Cheeze recipes with seeds instead of nuts as my daughter has nut allergies. My husband enjoyed this recipe and said he'll eat it again! YAY!

I used the marinade ingredients as a salad dressing last night and it was really good.

Very very tasty! I served it with a salad (because I was raised on steak and salad), and in retrospect I think sliced mango would have been a better choice. All in all, not bad for my first raw meal!

I didn't have the ume plum, so added a little lemon juice instead. This was insanely good! The combo of the cardamon, cumin and the mushroom was amazing!

Thanks for posting such a fab recipe :)

I at this a lot when I first turned raw. It was great! Right now though I ate it so much I lost the taste for it, maybe if it was a bit sweeter lol

I finally tried this recipe, after drooling over it for a week... It was really good, I followed it exactly and it was great ume plums were a bit pricey, at $12 for a 6oz package or $7 for the puree (I went w/ the pureed) the family thought it would be better cooked.... those boys just don't get it...

However we didn't enjoy the macadamia nut cheese next time I think I'll use almonds or cashews, and maybe I'll toss the shroom's on the grill for my non-raw boys.

I'll keep mine the way they are though it was great!

This is absolutely delicious. Although I did not use the Ume Plum or the cheeze, it still came out really good.

I cant stop raving!!!!

Thank you!
