Not so long ago, a braai wasn’t considered a braai without the meat. Today, these juicy giant mushrooms braaied to perfection, with generous bastings of our vegan-friendly Pesto Princess Basil & Lemon Pesto, make lighting that fire and chilling those beers so worth it.
Got any other plant-based, braai-loving recipes to share with us?
Sending love from a slightly smokey palace 😉
400 g large brown mushrooms
4 Tbsp Pesto Princess Basil & Lemon Pesto
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 whole lemon, halved
A dash of warm water
1. Thread the mushrooms carefully onto your skewers.
2. Mix the Pesto Princess Basil & Lemon Pesto, olive oil and a dash of warm water to create a basting sauce.
3. Braai the mushrooms over medium to hot coals, basting and rotating until they’re tender (approximately ten to fifteen minutes).
4. Place the halved lemons, cut side down, on the braai while the mushrooms cook.
Serve with the halved lemons, a drizzle of olive oil and a seasoning of salt and pepper.
