    Hot pesto-crumbed mushrooms with beet salad

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    1 tbsp olive oil
    100g pearled spelt, rinsed
    2 echalion shallots, halved and finely sliced
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    500ml Cooks’ Ingredients Vegetable Stock
    4 large flat mushrooms, outer skin peeled from the caps and stalks removed
    1 tbsp fresh green pesto with basil
    50g Cooks’ Ingredients Soft White Breadcrumbs
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    4 sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
    ½ x 160g pack beetroot salad

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a medium saucepan set over a medium heat. Add the spelt and toast, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add the shallots, garlic and a pinch of salt and fry for another 2 minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has been absorbed and the spelt is tender.

    2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining ½ tbsp oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Fry the mushrooms, seasoning them in the pan, for 2 minutes on each side, then transfer to a baking tray stalk-side up. Mix the pesto and breadcrumbs and pile onto the mushrooms. Bake for 10 minutes.

    3. Stir the lemon juice and sun-dried tomatoes through the spelt and divide between plates with the beetroot salad, then arrange the mushrooms alongside. Serve immediately.
