Ingredients

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C/gas 5.
  2. Cover the shiitake mushrooms with a little warm water and soak until softened (5-10 minutes), then remove and discard the stalks. Slice the cap.
  3. Clean the field mushrooms and then rub with the avocado oil and a little salt and pepper. Bake in the oven, with the gills facing down for 3 minutes then turn over and bake for another 3 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, sauté the onions and garlic in a pan until softened, add the shiitake, breadcrumbs, lemon, pumpkin seeds, thyme and parsley and mix together. Remove from the heat.
  5. Put this mixture on top of the mushrooms and bake for a further 5 minutes.

Variation

You can also add a little Clearspring Atlantic Sea Vegetables Salad to the breadcrumb mix before you put it into the mushrooms for extra nutrition.
