  • 4 large field mushrooms, stalks removed
  • 12 sundried tomatoes in oil from a jar, drained, with 2 tbsp oil reserved
  • 30g pack basil, leaves picked
  • 150g mozzarella, drained and torn
  • 4 slices sourdough bread, grilled

  2. Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet with the underside (gill side) down. Grill the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes, then flip them over and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until slightly softened.
  3. Any liquid from the mushrooms should be drained away.
  4. On each mushroom, place three sundried tomatoes, a couple of basil leaves, and a quarter of the torn mozzarella.
  5. Return the mozzarella to the grill for another 2-3 minutes, or until it has melted.
  6. Serve each mushroom on a grilled sourdough slice with a spoonful of pesto on top and the remaining basil leaves and rocket on the side.
