  • Olive oil, black pepper & salt 
  • 115g fresh mushrooms
  • 1 fennel 
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  1. Slice mushrooms. Heat some olive oil in a skillet with the garlic. Cook mushrooms until lightly roasted.
  2. Finely slice fennel and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Transfer the cooked mushrooms to another bowl. Marinate with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil and dried thyme. You can add a pinch of salt and black pepper. Stir to marinate all the mushrooms thoroughly. 
  4. Add 3 tbsp of the marinated mushrooms to the fennel salad. Drizzle with additional olive oil. Stir well and enjoy!

One of the most potent diuretic vegetables. Fennel is a ‘must’ against water retention and cellulite! In this case, it will optimize the cleansing action of the recipe.


ACV contains prebiotic fiber, the feed of our good gut bacteria, which makes it helpful to preserve our gut immunity, also known as digestive immunity. Moreover, its characteristic acidity sustains the work of the liver, boosting detoxification processes.


Science has shown the potent anti-inflammatory action of this herb that will enhance digestive immunity with the apple cider vinegar. Thyme also contains a good amount of vitamin K, which is fundamental to making several proteins for blood clotting and bone building.
