herb crusted mushrooms, romesco, caper crème

Herb crusted mushroomshave always been a favourite of mine. Pair them with a spicy chunky romesco and smooth caper crème, and you’ll have a marriage made in heaven. And a healthy one at that. It is hard to find sauces which don't contain a single naughty ingredient (check out the backs of your sauce packets at home and you will be shocked!) but we can change that. These 'healthful' versions of your classic romesco and caper crème sauce taste great and are genuinely good for you. Second helpings all round then...

romesco (serves 2)

1 red bell pepper

1 small tomato

½ tablesoon olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

black pepper to taste

¼ teaspoon chilli powder

pinch cayenne

pinch paprika

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

½ tablesoon chopped almonds

2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts

In a food processor, pulse all ingredients together, except olive oil, until well combined, but still chunky. Gradually pulse in olive oil.
