Fry the mushrooms in the olive oil with a pinch of salt until the mushrooms are beginning to brown and all the water has evaporated from the pan. Set aside to cool.

Once cooled, place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until everything is well blended and comes together.

Form into 8, equally-sized koftas and insert the skewers.

Either fry on a griddle pan, grill or braai the koftas for approximately 8 minutes, turning to brown all sides, until cooked through.

Squeeze over fresh lemon juice just before serving.

Enjoy with tzatziki, tomato and red onion salad and tortilla wraps.
