Mushrooms give this crunchy, rich salad a "meaty" flavor - fantastic on wholewheat or pita bread.
Preparation Time: 25 mins
Extra Time: 1 hr
In a frying pan, add the oil and mushrooms. Sauté for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
In food processor, add lemon juice, yogurt, tahini and cooked mushrooms. Blend to a smooth paste.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the blended mushroom paste mix, cabbage, green pepper, scallions, jalapeño pepper, hot pepper flakes, and ground pepper. Chill for 1 hour or overnight. Will keep for 3 to 4 days refrigerated.
For a sandwich, serve on wholewheat or pita bread. For more heat and moisture, stir chili sauce into the completed salad mix prior to chilling.
