About this recipe:I've really enjoyed all the baking I've done but I realize actual savoury recipes are a lot more useful in the long run. You may have to whip up something with mushrooms some day. Unlikely you'll HAVE to whip up a flourless pear cake =). So there will be more actual food recipes coming up on this blog soon.
This is really quick and once you read the recipe you'll realize very simple. If you have some left over you can heat it up and use it as a sandwich filling or just spread it on toast like I did.
Wash the mushrooms and soak in water for about 15 minutes just to make sure you’ve gotten them really clean. Drain and slice. Slice your onion thinly. Chop up your garlic into small bits or make a paste of it.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the butter. Add the onion and garlic and fry gently till they begin to brown.
Add the mushrooms and cook till soft and starting to brown.
Whisk together the cream and mustard and pour into pan. Give the mix a good stir and let it cook through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Note: Mushrooms are almost all water so even if you start out with an intimidating heap they will whittle away to nothing by the time you’re doing cooking them.
