The Italian Shroom
- Olive oil
- 1 large portobello or field mushroom
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 8-10 leaves fresh basil, chopped
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts, chopped
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- Sourdough roll, toasted
- Caramelised onion, avocado slices, tomato and baby spinach, to serve
- Carefully cut a crosshatch pattern on the cap side of your mushroom (this helps it cook evenly), then barbecue or panfry until tender.
- Remove from the heat, brush with the soy sauce and allow to soak in.
- Make the dressing simply by mixing up the basil, balsamic vinegar, pine nuts and remaining teaspoon of olive oil.
- Put the grilled mushroom on your toasted roll, spoon over the dressing, the pile up the remaining topping ingredients. Remember to lean over when you take a bite of this one, things can get juicy.
