Vegan Shiitake Stir-Fry

Warm up with this simple, satisfying stir-fry.

With fall in full swing, it's time to get warm from the inside out. This dish is so simple to put together it almost shouldn't count as cooking, but still makes for a satisfying main course. Serve alongside a steaming bowl of miso and side dish of freshly cooked edamame for a weeknight culinary trip to Japan.
