  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Mix together half the olive oil with the harissa spice mix. Brush the mixture over the mushroom caps, place in a roasting tin, gill-side up, and roast for 20 minutes until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, put the bread in a freezer bag with the remaining oil, twist the top and shake the bag to coat the bread in the oil. Tip the bread out onto a roasting tray and bake for 10–15 minutes, turning once, until crisp.
  3. Put the almonds on a roasting tray and toast for 10–15 minutes until starting to turn golden. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing, season and leave to one side.
  4. Place the salad leaves on a serving plate and top with the tomatoes, red onion and croutons. Spoon the dressing over the salad, toss to combine, then top with the mushrooms and toasted almonds.
