Healthy, moreish pickled vegetables are really popular at the moment,and truffle is also very on trend. This light lunch is a perfect meeting of both with creamy slices of goat's cheese too. Ensure that you leave the mushrooms in the cider vinegar the night before you want to make this dish to allow them to pickle fully.

If you make more pickled mushrooms than you need, they will keep in the fridge for up to a week, where they can be incorporated into quick lunches and snacks. They are a delicious antipasto to serve with cured meats, cheeses and grilled vegetables. Here, the sharp pickled mushrooms are beautifully contrasted with the truffle honey, which adds a sweet and savoury note to the tangy goat’s cheese. Once you have pickled the mushrooms, the ingredients can be put together in minutes for a quick and easy lunch or starter. Cover a crisp slice of sourdough toast with slices of goat’s cheese and then top with the mushrooms and a good drizzle of truffle honey.


  1. Halve the mushrooms then put into a saucepan with the remaining pickling ingredients and 75ml water. Bring to the boil then simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Set aside to cool, then put in a sealed container in the fridge overnight. They will keep for up to a week.
  2. To serve, simply slice the goat's cheese and put on the toast with the mushrooms and drizzle over the honey.
