Well worth the effort, these marinated mushrooms are very satisfying. The apple cider vinegar marinade is milder and mellower than those made with other types of vinegars. It adds a fresh tang to the mushrooms and is surprisingly filling when eaten as a snack between meals. SERVES 4.

• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
• 1/4 teaspoon ground fennel
• 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
• 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

• 1 stalk celery minced
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
• 1 pound small button mushrooms or large mushrooms, quartered
• Juice of 1 lemon
• 1/4 cup flax oil

1. In a saucepan, combine the spices, celery, water, and vinegar and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes.

3. Add the mushrooms, return to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for another 5 minutes.

4, Remove from the stove and remove the bay leaf.

5. Let the mixture cool and add the lemon juice and flax oil.

6. Place all of the ingredients in a glass jar, refrigerate, and let marinate for at least 1 hour. Serve cold.
