Mushrooms, Caramelised Onions, Avo and Rice Salad
One of those comforting salads that you just crave a big bowl of. If you are on the fence about mushrooms, Swiss brown has a much denser texture compared to other mushrooms due to their low water content. So if you don’t like mushrooms because of their texture, try swiss brown!
