This is a vegetarian version of a Spice Club recipe. You can find the original recipe here.


For pickled vegetables: Combine vinegar, cilantro, Asian Style Sprinkle, salt, sugar, radishes, pepper, and onion in a bowl. Cut cucumber lengthwise into thin slices. Using a vegetable peeler, shave carrot into long strips. Add cucumber and carrot to marinade and let sit while you prepare meatballs.

For mushrooms: Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Toss mushrooms with oil, salt, and pepper. Roast mushrooms stem-side down for 15 min. Turn the mushrooms and sprinkle with 1 tsp. Asian sprinkle. Return to oven for an additional 15 min.

To assemble: Slice rolls horizontally, being careful not to cut all the way through. Place 4-5 mushrooms on each roll.  Spoon tomato sauce over mushrooms. Top with marinated vegetables and serve.

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
