Mushrooms with rocket and walnut pesto

Marinated Mushrooms with Rocket and Walnut Pesto 

This plant-based recipe is the perfect side or as part of a tapas evening. The rich marinated umami mushrooms pair perfectly with this light peppery pesto. The Irish Peat Smoked Balsamic adds some extra smokiness to the mushrooms and helps to balance the marinade. Tag us on socials when you make it!


Marinated Mushrooms:

  • 1tbsp Dijon Mustard 
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 1 tbsp Irish Peat Smoked White Condiment 
  • 4 Garlic cloves, finely diced

  • Sprinkling of Salt 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 20 mls Citrus White Condiment

1. Combine all the marinade ingredients together and toss the mushrooms in it. cover and leave in teh fridge for 1 hour. Make sure to spread the marinade all over the mushrooms, spoon into teh middle as well to make sure it will be fully absorbed!  Meanwhile, combine all the pesto ingredients together and blend. If it's a little stiff, add some more olive oil.

3. Once the mushrooms are marinated, cook on a griidle pan until soft (about 5-10 minutes on each side) 

4. To serve, place mushrooms on a plate and drizzle pesto over them. If you have some Balsamic pearls, they give the plate a little extra drama -- we recommend the Black Garlic!
