I love a creamy mushroom recipe and although I have one in my book, this one is different and SUPER quick. My super quick creamy mushrooms are a bit (as ever on my blog) bish bash bosh because, although I’ve made it a few times, I always change it up based on what I have available and what I want to serve it with. I find creamy mushroom dishes can go with anything too. Pasta to make a sauce, rice to make a stroganoff style dish, potatoes for something different or even as a topping on toast!
Also feel free to adapt. Sometimes I add a dollop of yogurt or cream, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I whack in some garlic or some dill, sometimes I don’t. It’s just such a great, quick, go to option!
I’d say that this takes around 10-15 mins to make and you can totally keep it in the fridge the next day. Add a little yogurt or liquid when reheating so that it loosens up too.
Also if you’re after more of a crafted recipe, try my chickpea and mushroom stroganoff, which has always been one of my fave recipes too!
Ingredients: (makes around 2 child sized portions)
- 5 medium mushrooms
- A knob of butter
- 1 heaped teaspoon of plain flour
- 1 heaped teaspoon butter
- 2 large splashes of milk
- Garlic granules
- Ground almonds
- Coriander to top
- Yogurt stirred in or dollop on the side
- Chop mushrooms (very small for younger babies, just slice for toddlers) and add them to a pan with the first knob of butter.
- Allow them to brown and soften for around 5-6 minutes and then add the second teaspoon of butter along with the flour (add a sprinkle of garlic granules if using now).
- Stir the ingredients so the flower and butter make a paste around the mushrooms and then add the milk so that it covers the bottom of the pan.
- Keep stirring, bring to the boil and then turn to a simmer and leave to thicken a little for around 5 minutes – you can also sprinkle on some ground almonds to add a little extra nutrients.
- Serve on top of rice, potatoes, toast or along with pasta – whatever takes your fancy.
You can always blend the toppings for younger babies or for babies not used to texture (mushroom doesn’t mash well though)
