How to Speed Up Dinner Prep


1. Break feta into large chunks. Gently place in a sealable jar with chilli, thyme, bay leaf and peppercorns. Pour in enough oil to cover feta completely. Seal jar with a lid. Marinate for a minimum of 1 hour (keeps in fridge for up to two weeks).

2. Melt butter in a large frying pan on high. Sauté mushrooms for 4-5 minutes until golden and tender. Add lemon juice and season to taste.

3. Serve hot mushrooms piled onto toast with crumbled feta and relish. Accompany with rocket or spinach.
