We will add lemon and mandarin to the mushrooms! Prepare to fall in love with this vegan recipe!
My own cooking is influenced by where I have lived, by the people I have interacted, by the courses I have studied and by the flavours of my childhood. My current cooking is teeming with aromatic flavours that depend on fresh herbs, juicy fruits, earthy vegetables, as well as lots of Greek organic products from my family and selective producers.
Today’s recipe is influenced by my previous flatmate in Qatar. He used to cook a similar dish but with the use of shrimps. It’s very simple, very quick and mouthwatering indeed. You will need just ten minutes to cook it and that’s it.
The sautéing of the mushrooms shall be carried out in a low heat. As you can see the mushrooms start to caramelise and have a nice juicy colour.
You can use any mix of spices you want. Other spices that can be used include, basil, rosemary and thyme. You can serve it as it is or with mashed potatoes spiced with paprika. Enjoy! 🙂
