Mushrooms are a wonderful food for everyone; they are an excellent source of dietary fibre, contain B group vitamins, including riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folate, pantothenic acid and biotin (Vitamin H) and are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D; and they taste amazing!!
Eat them often; fresh in salad, on sandwiches or just as a snack. They are also wonderful in a huge variety of meals as a main ingredient instead of red meat or as added texture and flavour.
Here is a recipe that celebrates the wonderful flavour and deliciousness of the mushroom. Quick fried with a little butter or vegetable oil, a little garlic and lots of parsley. Perfect for a hearty breakfast!!!
Preparation time: 10 mins
- 150g (5 oz) mixed mushrooms, whole (Swiss and Button are good)
- 1 tbs vegetable oil or butter
- 1 clove of garlic, smashed and diced
- 2 tbs fresh parsley, roughly diced
- Ground sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
- thick slices of multigrain toast
Heat the oil or butter in a fry pan.
Add the garlic and mushrooms and fry adding a little extra oil or butter or I even just add a dash of water to stop them from drying out or sticking.
Fry till golden and just tender; add the parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on warm toast spread generously with hummus.
