MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:5min ›Ready in:15min

  1. Saute mushrooms in butter and oil for 5-7 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Combine the mushrooms, rocket, red peppers, chilli, basil, garlic and lemon rind in a large mixing bowl. Toss.
  3. Add lemon juice and oil to salad and toss well.
  4. Top off with Parmesan shavings.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
