A quick dish!

Yesterday:

When I got home, lunch was not appealing, looked into the fridge found some useful things [mushrooms - coriander - Parmesan] and did the following:



Took out some garlic & coriander



Butter in the pan



MUSHROOMS


Crushed garlic with coriander, added some salt when squashing them, it makes it easy to squash them :D this is my mother's tip! Then added some pepper "I prefer freshly crushed" and some dried rosemary



Added the mushrooms to the mix



Did not have time to cover the pan & wait for the mushrooms to sweat so i added a little bit of water ;p then after a minute or two added some cream over



A few minutes to simmer, the mushrooms with the fake white sauce mixed along well :D finally added some Parmesan cheese just before serving



Annnnnd :D I was DONE, it was ready to be eaten



This sauce with the mushrooms fits a pasta or even with some grilled chicken or steak ,, am a white sauce + mushroom + chicken lover :D thats why I made up this dish, although am not a garlic lover but with the white sauce it works well!

Mistakes:

It was a bit salty, I forgot that I added salt to the garlic & coriander mix :/ but I ateeee it along with my sister & bro,,, and they are FINE :D el7mdillah

a lot of cream and water added, a lot of sauce was produced :D which made it fit a pasta more than to be eaten alone ;p

I ate it with some brown toast. All in all it was a good quick Q80-ChillGirl'ie meal :D "that did not sound nice! too long"

LOL, no am not a vig & will never be! but its quicker like this, if i added any type of meat that would add 5-10 more minutes to preparation & cooking time, at that day i did not have that much time! :D this dish took 15-20 min all in all :D

NewBride

Looks yummy, I swore off mushroom cream when I had one of those canned ones, h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e! I am still apprehensive about trying it again, but just might because of the coriander. As of late, one of my favourite activities is chopping corainder :D the way the aroma comes out is magical!

This is a bit off-topic, but I just saw your Van Gogh post and liked it. I've been a fan of his for more than a decade now and I had the fortune of seeing one of his sunflowers paintings in a art gallery late last year. It was an out-of-world experience, and you are spot on, his simplicity is amazing.

About his life, part of what made me fascinated with him is his eccentricity; I guess normal people are boring!

Canned is crappy! I used to use canned mushrooms "an other fake way to eat a simple ingredient" which was tasteless! now i do not use it and using it is a CRIME, the taste totally disappears & any dish losses its soul! the coriander aroma am with you :D

Van Gogh ,, glad u liked the post, will elaborate more in the up coming days, as for his life i would say creativity is linked directly to the brain, and if for some reason this brain/ thoughts go out of the ordinary it is normal for them to reflect something different :D so i agree with ur thoughts but normal ppl are not boring ;p hmmmm although sometimes they are
