baked mushroom parcels

Dinner from a few weeks ago:
Baked mushroom and baby vegetable parcels (recipe from Plenty) served with brown rice and blanched asparagus. 

A really beautiful way of cooking. Basically you boil some baby vegetables and then combine them with mushrooms, herbs, breadcrumbs and some parmesan in some baking paper and tie with twine (which has been soaked in water to prevent burning) to create small parcels. Bake in the oven and serve with rice or couscous or anything you like.

The ritual of opening the parcel at the dinner table really adds a nice touch to the meal. The smell is incredible, not to mention the taste - the vegetables are tender and infused with herbs.
