Finely slice the leek and crush the garlic.


Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large, cast-iron pan over a high heat. Add the leeks and garlic to the hot oil and sauté for 2 minutes or until tender and golden.


Add the mushrooms to the pan, season well with the salt and sauté, tossing regularly for 3-4 minutes or until golden.


Add the vinegar, tamari (or soya sauce), honey, bay leaves and peppercorns to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a medium-low and cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 5-7 minutes or until the liquid has reduced and the mushrooms are tender. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.


Transfer to a serving bowl, scatter with roughly chopped coriander and sesame seeds.


Serve with the steamed rice.
