    •  Heat up 1 tbsp avocado oil and 2 tsp toasted sesame oil in a skillet and once hot add 2 cups baby bella mushrooms and 2 cups broccoli florets. Season with 1 tsp vegan oyster sauce, 1 tsp sea salt and ½ tsp Szechuan pepper (optional). Cook until no moisture remains, and both the mushrooms and broccoli are lightly golden, 10-12 mins.
