Hello #LoyalRoyals

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 😉

4. Place the halved lemons, cut side down, on the braai while the mushrooms cook.
