Yummo, a mushroom extravaganza – all the good stuff in one meal – what is not to love!


Shape the Mushroom & Hemp Magic Mince into walnut-sized balls

Heat a frying pan on medium heat, add the olive oil and onion, cook until onions are soft, add the garlic, chilli flakes and the Mushroom & Hemp balls. Cook for a few minutes until the Magic Mince Balls are starting to colour, then adding the mushrooms and thyme.

Fry until the moisture from the mushrooms has cooked off, and the balls have a nice golden colour. Add more olive oil if necessary. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Drain your pasta, reserving about 2-3 tbsp of the hot pasta water to add to the spicy mushroom pan. Add the butter, toss and then add the pasta and reserved cooking water. Serve sprinkled with parmesan, parsley and black pepper.
