I have to admit I haven’t yes got to grips with my Deliciously Ella cookbook as much as I would like. I LOVE the concept of awesome food that your body will love, but sometimes I just can’t train my mind welcome a ‘free from’ meal as much as I would a bowl full of pasta…

But the recipes that I have tried have, on the whole, been a huge success. And these stuffed chestnut mushrooms were a particular hit.

It was difficult to know what to serve them with so I put them with a salad (samphire, pea and rocket) and some burgers. But you could have them with pretty much anything. In fact, they would make a tasty starter or snack as well.

ingredients (serves 4 – or in our case 2 with spares for lunch)!
  • 10 – 12 chestnut mushrooms
  • 1 mug of sun dried tomatoes (180g)
  • Big handful of fresh basil
  • 50g pine nutes
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper
