Mushroom Sandwich

I always fancied going to Glastonbury – not so much the festival, but just the town. Having been up and down the M5 year in year out on the way to and from Cornwall I kept passing the sign and thought a quick tour of the town, the Cathedral and the Tor would be worth the diversion. So a couple of years ago, when the M5 was shut, we headed in the direction of Glastonbury (via Clark’s village).

I’d heard and read a few things about Glastonbury but nothing quite prepared me for what we met on arrival in town. Everyone it seems was wearing velour – women in purple, men in green and black. Women has to have long, long hair and men had to have beards. I felt just a little out of place. Every other shop sold crystals, candles and essential oils.

There are, however, a lot of places to eat selling a wide selection of meat free dishes. We opted for a small pub where I had a mushroom sandwich. Here is my version of it. Not a difficult dish to make, and not particularly nutritious. But it does taste quite nice and is dead simple to make.

Take a good handful of roughly chopped mushrooms per person. Add a clove of finely chopped garlic, a splash of olive oil and a knob of butter and fry or roast until the mushrooms are soft. Season with salt and black pepper. Remove from the heat and stir in a little chopped parsley.

Take a piece of baguette, slice in half then fill with the hot mushroom mixture. Top with grated parmesan or cheddar.

  1. You would be better off detouring to see the Cathedral at Wells, much more interesting than dull Glastonbury
