This quick recipe packs a lot of flavor, thanks to the dried spices and the earthiness of the mushrooms. It's quite versatile, too—throw it in a tortilla wrap, between slices of ciabatta, or over pasta or brown rice.

Makes 4 to 6 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes 
Cooking Time 20 minutes

3 tablespoons vegetable oil (coconut or canola)
2 red onions, sliced into medium cubes
4 teaspoons mild chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried oregano
salt and chili flakes, to taste
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 bell peppers (mix of red and yellow), sliced into strips
4 tomatoes, sliced thinly
3 packs mushrooms, sliced (keep small ones whole);
      use one or a mix of oyster, shiitake, pearl, and button
1 handful cilantro leaves, chopped

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions, spices, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of chili flakes until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic, peppers, and tomatoes. Cook until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Mix in mushrooms and cook until just soft, another 5 to 7 minutes. Throw in cilantro and season to taste.4  Garnish with a sprig of cilantro and serve.
