Once I've made a delicious bread, I like to eat with different things and I really love vegan spreads because it's an easy way to prepare and keep veggies for a few days. I've had in mind making some mushroom spread for a long time now, but never did before. But the other day we went for lunch to a nice Japanese macrobiotic cafe and I bought a recipe book where there was a recipe for a spread. So largely inspired by this Japanese recipe, I changed it to suit better my bread. So it turns out being a mushrooms-olives-thyme spread. It's simple and delicious.
I roughly cut the 150g of mushrooms of all sorts: here fresh shiitake and shimeji, and cook them in a bit of oil. Then in a food processor I mixed the mushroom, pitted black olives (just a large table spoon), salt (adjust the amount depending on the olives), and thyme leaves (3branches, so probably the equivalent to one tea spoon). Add a little of olive oil if necessary, process to puree or chopped as you like. I put the paste in a bin for easy handling. Ready to serve and you can keep it a few days in the fridge. Perfect with my original bread for example!
