• 200g mushroom, sliced (we used chestnut)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp five spice powder
  • 1 tbsp rice wine, preferably Shaohsing
  • ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 6 Chinese pancakes
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 5cm length cucumber, deseeded and sliced into matchsticks
  • ½ Little Gem lettuce, shredded
  • 4 tbsp hoisin sauce


  • STEP 1

    Heat a small frying pan. Add the mushrooms, soy, five-spice, rice wine, sesame oil and sugar. Stir until the mushrooms are cooked and the sauce is thick, bubbling and clinging to the mushrooms. Warm the pancakes – steam them or heat them in the microwave.

  • STEP 2

    Serve the mushrooms, spring onions, cucumber, lettuce and hoisin sauce in separate dishes, with the pancakes alongside.

  • STEP 3

    To assemble, spread a pancake, with a little hoisin sauce. Add some mushrooms, onions, cucumber and lettuce. Fold the pancake and enjoy.
