  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup fresh chopped Italian parsley (7-10 grams)


  • In a medium bowl add chopped mushrooms and salt, mix and let sit for 1 -1 1/2 hours (if you prefer a milder mushroom taste, then in the medium bowl of chopped mushrooms(without adding the salt, instead add the juice of one lemon, let sit for an hour, then add 1 teaspoon (3 grams) of salt, mix and let sit for another 30- 45 minutes then continue with the instructions), then drain and squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the mushrooms.
  • Place in a clean bowl and toss with olive oil, juice from 1/2 lemon and fresh chopped Italian parsley.
  • Let sit 20-30 minutes for flavours to blend. Serve with bruschetta or crusty bread.
