Before you start

Get 8 metal skewers out and ready, as well as a large griddle pan and frying pan. Preheat the oven to 120°C fan setting

Marinade the mushrooms

  • Tip the mushrooms into a bowl with the oil, crush in the garlic cloves, paprika, cumin, lemon juice and plenty of salt and pepper
  • Mix well and leave to marinate for at least an hour

Prepare the salad

  • Finely chop the roasted red peppers, cherry tomatoes, onion and parsley and tip into a bowl. Add in the pul biber or chilli flakes, pomegranate molasses and lemon juice and plenty of salt and pepper and mix well
  • This will keep well covered in the fridge for a few days

Prepare the flatbreads

  • Tip the self-raising flour, baking powder and sea salt into a bowl, then pour 200ml of warm water
  • Mix well, then tip out onto a lightly floured worksurface and knead for just a minute until even and smooth
  • Tip back into the bowl, cover and leave while you skewer and fry the mushrooms

Skewer the mushrooms

  • Get 2 of the skewers and push both through either side of the mushroom so it is securely held
  • Repeat with the remaining skewers and mushrooms
  • Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and cook the mushrooms for 5 minutes a side until charred and juicy
  • Move to a baking tray and put into the oven to keep warm

Make the flatbread

  • Divide the flatbread dough into 8 pieces and roll each to a 14cm circle on a lightly floured worksurface
  • Heat a frying pan over a high heat and cook each circle for 1-2 minutes on each side until puffed and charred and keep warm in a clean tea towel while you cook the rest
  • Serve the mushroom skewers with the flatbreads, salad, hummus, pickled chillies, more pomegranate mollasses for drizzling and a few parsley leaves
