Kitchen tips

  1. Cook this over the braai: Place mushrooms over medium coals and braai for 10 minutes or until just cooked, add cheese and allow to melt.
  2. Smaller mushrooms can also be used or substitute large mushrooms for sliced mushrooms. Coat mushrooms with some of the oil mixture and roast and serve as above.
