Recipe: Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with Walnuts and Herbs

For two:
Ingredients: 4 large Portobello Mushrooms; 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan; 90g dried Porcini; 12 sprigs Tarragon; 10 sprigs Chervil (if available); 7 sprigs Thyme; 100g Walnut pieces, chopped in food processor; 3 cloves Garlic; juice of Half a Lemon; seasoning.

1. Reconstitute dried porcini in hot water for at least 30 minutes; drain and rinse to remove any grit.

5. Use mixture to stuff mushroom caps, and top with parmesan and herb mixture.

6. Bake 20 minutes in an oven pre-heated to 180 degrees C.
