What type of non-dairy milk should I use for this healthy vegan stew?

You can use any type of non-dairy milk you prefer. I personally like to use coconut milk, especially full fat coconut milk, but if you want to save the extra calories you can use skim coconut milk. Other non-dairy milk that works well in this recipe to create a wonderful creamy sauce is soy milk, almond milk and oat milk.

What type of mushrooms can you use 

You can use any type of mushrooms you favour in this stew. Using portobello mushrooms adds a meaty and deep flavour to the dish. You can also use cremini mushrooms or any mixed mushrooms you prefer.
