Kidney Bean and Red Pepper Burgers


Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding with Strawberries, Raspberries and Kiwi


Marinated Large Flat Portobello Mushrooms


Large, flat mushrooms have a substantial, earthy bite to them. They are extra juicy when cooked in this simple marinade. Perfect on their own but you can also sandwich them in between a burger bun with some salad leaves and a little mayonnaise.

Serves: 4-6

Prep time: 10 minutes plus 2 hours marinating time

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Gluten free, Dairy free, Vegan


6 large Portobello mushrooms, cleaned

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons tamari or soya sauce

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, stalks removed, roughly chopped

1/2 lemon to squeeze over the mushrooms to serve


  • Place the olive oil, tamari and fresh thyme in a bowl and mix well.
  • Lay the mushrooms face up in a baking tray and spoon over the marinade, making sure the mushrooms are well covered, and leave for at least 2 hours in the fridge to allow the flavours to infuse.
  • Preheat the BBQ or the grill to medium/high.
  • Lift the mushrooms out of the marinade and place, gills side down, on the BBQ or under the grill.
  • Cook for 5 minutes until they begin to colour and soften. Then carefully turn the mushrooms over and cook skin side down for a further 5 minutes so that they are cooked on both sides. I like to spoon some of the marinade into the mushrooms as they are now gills side up.
  • Once cooked on both sides, remove from the heat.
  • Drizzle the remaining marinade over the mushrooms and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice on the top.
