Ingredients

Sauce:
55g cashews
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp dijon mustard
70g white miso
35g nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp English mustard powder
245ml soy milk
645ml water
1 1/2 tsp arrowroot or cornflour
2 tsp truffle oil

Mushrooms:
1 tsp olive oil
200g white onion, diced
1/2 tsp molasses sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp white miso
1/4 tsp black pepper
200g sliced chestnut mushrooms
250g button mushrooms, halved
1 tbsp truffle oil

Spinach + Orzo
300g baby spinach, wilted
360g orzo
Small bunch parsley, finely chopped

Method

STEP 1

To make the sauce, soak cashews in boiling water for 1 hour, then drain and rinse. Blend all the sauce ingredients except for the arrowroot and truffle oil together in a blender until smooth - about 2 mins.

STEP 2

Pour the sauce into a saucepan and bring up to a simmer. In a small bowl combine the arrowroot and 1 tbsp water, mix to make a slurry, then whisk it into the sauce to thicken it. Stir in the truffle oil.

STEP 3

To prepare the mushrooms, heat the oil in a sauce pan. Add the onions and cook them until caramelised and brown, about 15 mins. Add the molasses sugar, garlic, miso and pepper to the sauce pan and cook over a medium heat till the sugar has melted slightly. Add in the mushrooms, cooking until tender and finish with truffle oil. Allow to cool.

STEP 4

Cook the orzo in boiling water until al dente, then stir it through the sauce along with the wilted spinach.

STEP 5

Serve the orzo topped with the mushrooms and chopped parsley.
