When most people want a quick, easy tea they bung a ready meal in the microwave, make a piece of toast or order chinese. I make mushroom stroganoff. It genuinely takes about 20 minutes to cook, tastes delicious and is far healthier than the usual quick tea. Here is my recipe.
You need: 250g basmati rice, 200g mushrooms, 3 garlic cloves, 150ml vegetable stock, 50ml double cream, lemon juice, butter for frying, salt and pepper.
First of all boil the rice in a pan for about 15 minutes. While that is cooking crush your garlic and quarter the mushrooms. Fry the mushrooms and garlic in a tablespoon of butter in a large frying pan until soft, then add the stock and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cream, and a dash of lemon juice stir and take off the heat. Plate up your rice and make a well in the middle and then pour your stroganoff into the well.
And that really is it. It probably isn’t the same recipe that you’d find in a top restaurant but it is my simple version of a lovely dish.
