  • 1 cup (100g) pecans
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 ½ cups (250g) mushrooms, chopped

Preheat the oven to 175 ºC. 


Place the nuts on a baking tray covered with baking paper and roast them in the oven for about 10 minutes. 


Meanwhile, heat the oil and fry the mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add the thyme, garlic and season with pepper and salt, cook for another 2 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and then puree the mixture with half of the nuts in the food processor.
