    3 1/2 lb (1.5 kg) portobello mushrooms, stems removed and gills scraped 2 Tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice 1 1/2 Tbsp (20 mL) vegan Worcestershire sauce 4 to 5 Tbsp (60 to 75 mL) potato starch (or arrowroot powder or cornstarch) 3 to 4 Tbsp (45 to 60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil Few pinches sea salt Few pinches freshly ground black pepper Sea salt (for finishing)

    Slice mushrooms into 1 to 1 1/2 in (2.5 to 4 cm) thick strips. In large shallow dish, combine lime juice and Worcestershire sauce. Add mushrooms and season with pepper; marinate for at least 20 minutes, flipping mushrooms halfway through.

    On large plate, combine potato starch and salt. In nonstick frying pan on high, heat 3 Tbsp (45 mL) oil. Coat marinated mushrooms in starch mixture, and lightly tap them to remove any clumps.

    Carefully add mushrooms to pan, searing one side for 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Flip over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until crispy, adding more oil if needed. If mushrooms stick together, separate with a heatproof spatula.

    Serve hot, sprinkled with additional salt if desired. If reheating is necessary, transfer to a lined baking pan and bake at 450 F (230 C) until hot.

    Serves 3 as side dish.

    Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Cilantro

    Yogurt completely transforms the texture of these chicken thighs, making them tender and flavourful with bright notes of lemon and cilantro. Ideal for a day trip, these can be marinated in the morning and cooked in the evening, but they also work well when cooked in advance and packed for a picnic to be eaten cold. Marinade mentions Marinate chicken thighs for anywhere between 4 and 24 hours. Discard excess marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken. It should not be consumed uncooked.
