Looking for a super satisfying salad?! This dish is inspired by one of my favourite go to Italian spots in Toronto called Terroni’s. Meet the Funghi Assoluti – Or Warm Mushroom Arugula Salad. I’ve been craving this dish for a while now so I just decided to create it myself and it is so simple. The mushrooms are so hearty and delicious. The texture feels like you are eating meat but it is completely vegetarian. I also love the peppery arugula and salty Parmesan that gives this salad a great balance. All you need to make it is arugula, oyster mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic.
