This Crispy Mushroom Schwarma bowl is an adaptation of a recipe from Jamie Oliver's new book, Veg. You can use both our Schwarma and Dukkah Spice Blends for this recipe.
- 1 cup (200 g) natural yoghurt
- 30 oz (800 g) portobello and oyster mushrooms
- 1 red onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 preserved lemons, only the rind
- 2 tsp Old Stone Mill Schwarma Spice Blend
- 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
- ½ cucumber, in thin slices
- 100 g cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 4 tbsp hummus
- pickled red onion rings
- 2 tbsp Old Stone Mill Dukkah
- 4 pita breads, toasted and sliced
Line a sieve with pieces of kitchen towel. Tip in the yoghurt and pull up the paper and very gently apply pressure so that the liquid starts to drip through into a bowl. Leave to drain.
Chop the mushrooms. Peel and quarter the onion and separate into petals. Peel the garlic and roughly chop the preserved lemons. Bash to a paste in a pestle and mortar with ½ a teaspoon of sea salt, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and the spices. Pour in 1 tablespoon of oil, then toss with all the mushrooms and onions. Marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Preheat the oven to 475F (240ºC). Thread the mushrooms and onions on to a large skewer, then place on a large baking tray and roast for 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Push the veg together so it’s all snug, baste with any juices from the tray, then roast for a further 15 minutes, or until gnarly, drizzling over the pomegranate molasses for the last 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the cucumber, tomatoes and vinegar in a bowl. Add salt to taste.
Divide the hummus and salad over 4 plates or bowls. Put the mushroom shawarma and optional onion rings on top. Drizzle over your favorite olive oil, sprinkle with dukkah and serve with the pita breads.
