Often billed as the unofficial national dish of Laos, larb is a meat salad that's eaten across Laos and even in parts of Thailand. This vegan version uses mushrooms that are sautéed in a mixture and served in baby gem leaves for a fresh, crunchy and fragrant dish that's perfect for a light lunch or dinner. You can also add it to your Meat-free Monday repertoire!
