Hello everyone! I know I haven’t posted a recipe in a while. Must admit I have been trying hard to work on my little online store. Cannot believe all the technical bits I’ve had to sort out, still not perfect but I’m nearly there. Although I have been cooking I haven’t had time to create recipes and snap those photos. I also have my 11 year old who’s been sick for a week now, so it’s been exhausting. Yesterday I wanted a very quick dinner so we settled for some Veggie Schnitzels with a Creamy Mushroom Sauce and a fresh green salad. It was super yum!
This Creamy Mushroom Sauce is so versatile. You can have it on chicken, on veggies, with pasta or toast. You can also try it on some baked potato with a sprinkle of cheese. Amazing how some delicious sauce can turn even the most boring meal into something mouthwatering. That’s exactly what dinner was last night.
You can use button mushrooms or Portobellini mushrooms for the sauce. I usually buy Portobellini mushroom, but if I send my hubby to the shops and don’t give him specific instructions, he grabs any mushroom on the shelf. It’s why this time round I had to use button mushrooms. For some extra creaminess I used fresh cream but you can use milk or half and half. I also love adding some extra garlic to my sauce but if you are not a fan you can reduce the amount.
It’s also a very quick and easy sauce to make so you can have dinner in no time.
