Takes 20 minutes

Serves 2

Ingredients
 

  • 2 flatbreads
  • 200 g Oyster Mushroom

Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp sumac
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 1.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 15 g fresh coriander

Tahini Sauce

  • 50 g Tahini
  • 100 g natural yoghurt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 juice lemon
  • pinch salt
  • pickled red onion

Instructions
 

  • Tear open the mushrooms so that they can be spread out as wide as possible when compressed. Add them to a bowl along with the seasoning and mix well. Heat a wide bottomed non-stick frying pan on high heat and add 1 tbsp of oil. Once hot add in a single layer of the mushrooms ensuring there is enough room for them to spread out and fry for 1-2 mins, using a clean pan compress the mushrooms to maximise charring and to evaporate more moisture for a more fleshy texture, press down for 20 seconds. Turn and repeat on the other side until the mushrooms are charred, cooked through and smell magnificent. Remove from the pan onto a chopping board and roughly chop.
  • Next finely dice the cucumber, coriander and the cherry tomatoes and mix together with a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • For the tahini cream, peel and finely dice the garlic clove and add to a bowl along with the tahini, yoghurt, lemon juice and pinch of salt and mix until it emulsifies into a thick cream. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking. 
  • To assemble, add a generous coating of the tahini cream, followed by the coriander, tomato, cucumber mix, followed by lots of mushroom “meat” and top with some pickled red onions. Enjoy!
