|Mushrooms on Toast|
For a quick lunch I whipped up some mushrooms on toast. This is all I needed:
½ onion, chopped
1 punnet mushrooms – I just used white button
½ tsp porcini powder to give depth of flavour
Touch of chilli flakes
Small amount of chicken stock (optional if you don't eat meat of course)
Splosh of brandy
So I sautéed the onion for a couple of minutes in a mix of olive oil and butter and then added the sliced mushrooms and the spices. When they are cooked I added the stock and brandy and cooked for another minute or so. Right at the end (and off the heat) I stirred through a spoonful of crème fraiche – could have been cream or sour cream.
Served on toast it made a nice lunch.
