A Cooking experiment.

The poor farmer pales when he comes through the door and I tell him that today's lunch is an experiment.   But it would be boring to produce the same meals over and over again wouldn't it.

Well I made rather nice mushrooms on toast for tea the other night and the farmer pronounced it very nice - real praise from him as 'all right' is usually as far as it goes.  Thought I would pass the recipe on for you to try.   It is nothing earth shattering, but rather a nice combination of tastes.

Chop your mushrooms (field mushrooms if possible but otherwise any combination) up fairly small.  Pour some good olive oil into a pan and chop a couple of cloves of garlic small and gently cook for a couple of minutes in the olive oil.   Put the bread on to toast.  Put the mushrooms into the garlic/oil and cook quite quickly for three or four minutes.    Pile on to buttered toast and grate parmesan cheese over the top.Delicious.  Try it and report back,

Out for a Chinese meal with 'the girls' tonight.   Already looking forward to the battered prawns.

The mushrooms on toast sound delicious. I inflicted a culinary experiment on my husband last night - I though it was quite tasty but don't think he shared my view!
Enjoy your Chinese meal.

We're off to Exeter to get a Chinese takeaway later on the flimsy pretext of buying a drill that could have been purchased on-line. Any excuse in this rural, fast food free wilderness!

Sounds Wonderful !
I love mushrooms made just like you said on placed on a plain pizza dough, no red sauce, with parmesan and fresh ground black pepper.

I will try the toast idea.

cheers, parsnip

We frequently cook our mushrooms in exactly the same way - so SNAP!

Snap indeed Heron's View - they are good aren't they? Sometimes mushrooms promise so much and then don't deliver - so this is one way of avoiding that. Thanks for calling.

Mushrooms sound wonderful, - I had to give up on the ladies night out with prawns, done with butter and garlic - a tummy rebellion. Now I have something more prosaic and kind to my digestion.
