What you'll need:

For the mushrooms

For the salsa

  • 4 small cooked beetroots, finely chopped
  • ¼ onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • Small bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 30g walnut halves, finely chopped
Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2



Preheat your grill, and get some oil heating in a large frying pan.


Fry the mushrooms on both sides for two to three minutes, and then lay them face up on a baking tray. Divide the cheese between the mushrooms, then sprinkle over the thyme, the garlic, the walnut halves, the pepper and a drizzle of honey. Grill for three minutes or so, enough to get the cheese bubbling.


For the salsa, simply mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Serve the mushrooms on a plate, with a generous dollop of the salsa on the side, and enjoy with crusty bread. Bellissimo!
