Olu Stirfry


Olu is what the Yoruba people of Southwestern Nigeria call mushroom. Unfortunately, I didn’t like mushroom as a child ( I didn’t like avocados too… imagine!). I was really missing out. Now that I’m wiser 😂, I have found ways to enjoy mushroom wellllllll…

If you are vegan, this recipe is about to be your best friend 😉
