You will love how this recipe is so simple and easy, all that is required is fresh mushrooms and a marinade which comes together in no time. The taste is delicious the texture soft and slightly chewy.

Oyster mushrooms have a light delicate flavour if left plain, but when you marinate this mushroom it soaks up all the flavours. For this recipe the mushroom is pan fried, the same can be baked or grilled.

Serve with freshly made pita bread (learn how to make pillowy soft pita) and brown rice salad.


Tear up the mushrooms into chunks, add to prepared marinade, toss to coat and leave for 30 minutes.

Thread the marinated mushroom on to skewers and fire up the heat. Once your pan is hot add a dash of oil and vegan butter then add the skewers turn heat down to medium. Regularly turn the skewers you want the mushrooms to cook golden and caramelise.


EQUIPMENT 1 frypan, 1 large size mixing bowl, 1 serving plate


PREPARE SKEWERS

Cover 6 wooden skewers with boiling water and let them soak for 30 minutes.

This helps prevent skewers from burning when they are placed in the pan or on a hot girdle.
