  • Serve 4-6 Servings


1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 lemon, rind finely grated, juiced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp caster sugar

2 tsp tahini paste

400g button mushrooms

1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

150g roasted capsicum, cut into strips

1 bunch watercress, sprigs picked

1/2 cup flaked almonds, toasted


1Combine oil, lemon rind and juice, garlic, sugar, tahini plus salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk well to combine. Remove 1 tbs dressing and set aside. Add mushrooms to the bowl and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until mushrooms have absorbed dressing.

2Blanch, steam or microwave the asparagus until bright green and tender. Refresh in cold water, pat dry with paper towel and cut into thirds crossways.

3Just before serving add asparagus, capsicum, watercress and almonds to the mushrooms and toss to combine. Arrange on a platter, drizzle with reserved dressing and toss gently.
