Griddled Harissa Mushrooms on Fluffy Flatbread with Smoky Butter bean Hummus and Mint Dip
This stunning dish is incredibly tasty – the juicy harissa mushrooms burst with flavour. Served on a bed of fluffy flatbreads and super creamy hummus. Yum!
The sun is shining and BBQ/grilling is in the air. I love a good cauliflower steak or crispy tofu skewer–but I think a gorgeous juicy mushroom is hard to beat.
So I give you–BBQ Harissa Mushrooms on fluffy flatbread with smoky butterbean hummus and mint dip. The mushrooms have been marinated in Harissa, which adds tons of flavour, then either griddled or cooked on the BBQ–seriously tasty.
They are brilliant in a burger but I love them with a fluffy flatbread, some dolloped smokey butter bean hummus and then topped with super fresh mint cucumber dip. The combination of textures and flavours is fantastic.
It’s good to marinade the mushrooms for at least an hour, but don’t panic if you don’t have time.
Flatbread- swap for burger buns for a delicious mushroom burger option

Butterbeans–swap for chickpeas or frozen peas
