Stemming from Chinese cuisine, the term bao refers to steamed bread buns that are light and airy in texture. In recent years, the term "bao" has become popular, especially the "Gua Bao" style, which is an open-faced bao resembling a taco. Packed full of flavour we've got two fillings to share with you for our bao today; sticky hoisin mushrooms and gochujang sweet potato - both bangin' they are mouth-wateringly tasty and the perfect weekend dinner.
