At times JibberJabber Towers is divided between the males and females. My daughter and I like eggs, yeast extract and mushrooms. The men of the house do not. This means at times we miss out on some of our favourite things but my daughter and I thought we should treat ourselves to our own little lunch.
When we do manage to sneak some mushrooms into recipes it's usually the standard closed cup variety with the occasional addition of some chestnut mushrooms to a slow cooker beef dish. So we thought we would try something new and got a variety of exotic mushrooms. I'd love to be able to pick the fungi in the woods but I know I would end up with a basketful of extremely dangerous and poisonous mushrooms. Instead we went for cap, oyster and shiitake.
We whipped up this mushroom stroganoff for lunch. There's just enough for a satisfying snack as the sauce and mushrooms are quite rich and filling. These are mushrooms that pack a punch. What new foods have you tried recently?
