Mushrooms are a great food that sometimes need a bit of help with their flavour when they are on their own. The goat’s cheese, basil and nutmeg do just that for this satisfying dish, which makes a great starter for entertaining too.
Ingredients: Serves two
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, about a small handful from the bunch
- Pinch of ground sea salt
- Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
- 4 large Portobello mushrooms, cleaned and stalks removed
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 2 medium tomatoes, cut into thick slices
- 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
- 75g goat’s cheese
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg, grated
Sprinkle the basil, salt and pepper evenly over the mushrooms and sliced tomatoes. Next sauté the garlic in a hot, lightly oiled frying pan or griddle and remove before they burn.
Cook the mushrooms for 2–3 minutes or until tender, turning once (cook them upside down first so that when they are turned over the excess liquid can drain out). Remove the mushrooms from the pan, then add the tomatoes to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Place the tomatoes on top of the mushrooms, and place the sliced goat’s cheese evenly over the top.
Finally place the mushrooms under a hot grill until the cheese has melted, these mushrooms are fantastic with a choice of vegetables, rosti or a mixed salad.
