I just LOVE mushrooms! They taste amazing AND they are so healthy for you!
Did you know that mushrooms are a food source of certain B vitamins (riboflavin, folate, thiamine, pantothenic acid and niacin)? They also contain minerals like selenium (a powerful antioxidant), potassium, copper, iron and phosphorous. They are also a good source (along with oats) of beta glucans, a type of fibre which has been shown to improve immune function!
These mushrooms are amazing on toast, as part of a big brekky or as a flavourful side dish.
4 punnets mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion (or 2 small), peeled and finely sliced
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons miso paste
Juice of half a lemon
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
Saute onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes until just translucent.
Add in the mushrooms, reduce heat, cover and leave to soften.
While mushroom is softening, put the miso paste, lemon juice and sesame oil in a bowl and mix to combine. Don't stress too much if it doesn't combine too well as it will dissolve once it is added to the pan.
Uncover your pan with the mushrooms and add in the miso mix and stir in until the miso dressing is completely mixed in.
Continue cooking over low-medium heat until the mushrooms are cooked to your liking.
My husband loves to soak up the mushroom "juices" with bread , so I usually keep a lid on the mushroom as they cook, but if that's not your thing, cook them uncovered until the excess moisture evaporates off.
Serve with toast, a big brekfast or as a fabulous side dish (or try THIS RECIPE!) and enjoy!!!
