1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

10 ounces white or cremini mushrooms, stemmed if woody or dry

1 small red onion, sliced

2 tablespoons water

2 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds

Pinch red pepper flakes

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/4 cup sliced almonds

8 cups arugula (about 3 bunches)

2 ounces Manchego or Parmesan


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushroom caps and cook until brown and tender, about 8 minutes. Stir the remaining olive oil, vinegar, onion, water, garlic, coriander, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Add the oil mixture to the mushrooms and cook until tender and marinade has reduced, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and cool. Serve now or refrigerate for up to a week.
  3. Meanwhile, put the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium heat, toss until evenly toasted and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Toss the arugula with the marinated mushrooms and marinade in a large bowl and divide among 4 plates. Shave the cheese and scatter the almonds over the top.
