Mushroom antipasti recipe: how to save veg heading for the bin

I try to make the most of all my food and hate waste, so I had to think of something to do with these mushrooms which were really on their last legs

1y ago

These mushrooms were desperate for a revival and heading for the bin, so in order to get another four or five days out of them, I quickly cooked them in this way so that over the next few days we can eat them as a nibble with a drink or with some kind of toasted bread one rainy evening this week.


First, brush off any soil with a pastry brush, then boil them for four minutes, drain and put into a mixing bowl.

Add ΒΌ cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar, bay leaves, a small chopped red onion, salt and pepper, and stir well.

Put into an airtight jar and allow to cool. Store in the fridge to eat within five days.

How are you making your vegetables last?

  • I sort of have this idea that the current state of economic activity will lead us back to the thrifty 1980s or 1950s.

    Every one that I know is looking for small cost trimming ideas.
