Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 12-20 portobello mushrooms
  • 1 whole bulb garlic
  • 1-2 red onions, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 8 fresh figs
  • ½ cup firm feta cheese
  • 10-15 black olives
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • fresh mint, to serve
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Brush off any dirt from the mushrooms. Take off the stems, discarding any woody bits. Rip the mushrooms in half or thirds and add everything to the pan.
  3. Crush the garlic and scatter over the mushrooms. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper and give everything a good stir.
  4. Add the onions to the pan, followed by the balsamic vinegar.
  5. Rip the figs in half and dot around the pan. Do the same with the olives. Crumble the feta into medium sized pieces (about 1 tsp in size) and sprinkle over the thyme and oregano.
  6. Bake uncovered in the oven for 1 hour. Leave the ingredients to cook without stirring.
  7. Take out of the oven, then stir. Scatter over a good handful of chopped mint leaves.
Notes
If you don't have access to fresh figs, use dried. Reconstitute them in just boiled water for 10 minutes before draining and adding to the pan.
