  • 5 slices ginger

  • Remove the stems with a pair of scissors. Save the stem for soups and reserve the mushrooms water for later.
  • Place gluten balls in a bowl and or hot water to cover the balls. Using a pair of tongs, dip the balls into the hot water to soften them. Once the gluten balls start to wrinkle, squeeze out the water and set them aside.
  • Heat a large wok and add 2 tablespoons of oil.
