We make walnut paste (thick) or walnut sauce (thin) and add to vegetables or place already cooked chicken or fish in it. This simple recipe of roasted mushrooms with walnut paste takes only few minutes to prepare and is super delicious. —Madona Giorgadze

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Clean the mushrooms with a wet paper towel, remove the stems, and place them on a baking sheet. We take the stems off so that the hollow part of the mushroom will catch all the juice during the baking. Do not throw the stems out; bake them next to the mushrooms. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and black pepper and bake for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the walnuts, spices and garlic in a food processor and grind them well. Add vinegar and salt and move the paste into a bowl. After the mushrooms are cooked through, remove them from the pan, pour the juices that are inside the mushrooms into the walnut paste. Slice the mushrooms thinly and place them in the bowl with walnut paste. Mix well, sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
