Calories per serving


100g/ 3 Portobello mushrooms

30g/ 1 slice ham

30g ricotta cheese

2 peppadews

1 tbsp soy sauce

How to prepare:

  1. Preheat fan oven to 200 C.
  2. Wash mushrooms and place on a baking tray lined with a large sheet of tinfoil that will be big enough to cover the mushrooms later.
  3. Chop a slice of ham finely and mix in a bowl with ricotta cheese.
  4. Finely slice 2 peppadews and add them to ham and cheese mixture.
  5. Add in a tablespoon soy sauce and mix well.
  6. Using a spoon, fill the mushrooms evenly with the mixture. Close the tinfoil over the mushrooms creating a parcel, but leave some space to allow steam to circulate
  7. Place in the oven for 15 minutes and then serve
