- Clean the brown mushrooms by rinsing, removing the stems and patting dry.
- Make the marinade by adding all ingredients to a small mixing bowl and dropping the mushrooms into the marinate for 20-30 minutes. Turn frequently to ensure they are evenly coated.

- Heat the braai grill to a medium heat, and brush lightly with olive oil, or a sprayable non-stick product.
- Take the mushrooms from the marinade and allow excess marinade to drip off before placing face down on the grill.
- Grill over medium direct heat for 4-5 minutes before flipping for a further 2-3 minutes.
- Brush frequently with the marinade.
- Top with crumbed feta, freshly chopped chives and a crack of black pepper.
- Play with the marinade flavours as you try this recipe. Try adding honey and brown sugar for a beautiful caramelised finish, or sweet chilli sauce for some tang.
- Mushrooms really are a delicious and simple meal that compliment almost everything in your pantry.
