Mushrooms are a great, quick cooking vegetable. I especially love this sauce. It’s absolutely delicious. You can have it as an accompaniment with almost any dish. It goes down really well topped on steak and maybe serve with some fries or mashed potato or even roast potatoes. You’ll be enjoying every single bite as you go.
Resources/Equipment You Will Need
- Medium sized pot
- Wooden spoon
- Chopping board
- Sharp knife
- Small bowl
- Measuring jug
- Gather your ingredients together. (150g button mushrooms; 150ml fresh cream; 1/2 tsp salt; 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper; 3 cloves garlic, chopped; 1 tsp fresh basil, chopped; 1 tbsp butter/ margarine/olive oil; 1 tbsp plain flour and 150ml fresh milk)
- Melt the butter (or margarine suitable for making sauces) in a pot.
- Add the garlic and basil. Saute for about 30 seconds.
- Add the mushrooms and allow them to cook for about 5 min, stirring occasionally.
- Add the fresh cream.
- Stir until the fresh cream is evenly incorporated.
- Replace the lid and allow the fresh cream to gently simmer until it has evaporated/is reduced! The mushrooms should now also have a lovely golden brown colour to them!
- When the mushrooms are golden brown and the fresh cream has reduced strain out the excess oil now created from the fresh cream.
- Mix flour and a little milk in a small bowl to make a paste. Pour this paste into the pot with mushrooms. Add the rest of the milk and allow it to simmer gently for 10 min, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
