  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 ml
  • 12 button mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika 1.15 grams
  • 1/2 cup white wine 120 ml
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup blanched almonds 35 grams
  • handful fresh parsley
  • pinch sea salt
  • dash black pepper


  1. Add 2 cloves garlic roughly chopped into a mortar, along with a 1/4 cup of raw blanched almonds, 2 tbsp of chopped parsley and a pinch of sea salt, using a pestle, pound down on the ingredients until you form a paste, set aside

  2. Heat a large fry pan with a medium-high heat

  3. Meanwhile, cut 12 button mushrooms (washed & patted dry) into thick slices that are 1/4 inch (.635 cm) thick

  4. After heating the pan for 4 minutes, add in 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and immediately add in the sliced mushrooms, mix them around so they´re all coated in the olive oil, then place them in a single layer (the best that you can) and cook for 2 minutes without mixing, then mix the mushrooms around and cook the other side for another 2 minutes without mixing, once all the mushrooms have a crusty sear on both sides, remove them from the pan and set aside

  5. Using the same pan, lower the fire to a medium heat, add in 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 onion finely diced, mix the onion with the olive oil, after 3 minutes and the onions are translucent, add the mushrooms back into the pan, along with 1/2 tsp sweet smoked paprika and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together, then add in 1/2 cup white wine and simmer for a couple of minutes

  6. After 3 minutes and the alcohol has cooked off and the wine has reduced in half, add in the garlic & almond mixture, gently mix together until well mixed and cook for 1 minute, then remove the pan from the heat and transfer into a serving dish, sprinkle with finely chopped parsley, enjoy!
