  3. In a pan saute the portobello mushroom and asparagus, then blend it well together with coconut cream and parsley and seasoning.

  5. Let it rest for a few minutes before you put them to deep fry in a hot pan and fry them for 2/3 min.
  6. Saute the oyster mushrooms and the rest of the okra with the soy sauce and rosemary in a pan. Cut the fresh bell pepper and cherry tomato into slices.
  7. Finally, cut a bit of plantain dough to form a flatbread with your hand, or pasta maker or rolling pin. Then heat it in a hot pan with no oil. Let it cook on both sides. Then it’s time to serve. Et voila, bon appetit!
