Damien can cook: Mushrooms

July 23, 2008

Yup, bachelor life has its perks. I can make a mess in the kitchen and nobody can complain, haha.

So when a simple vegetarian lunch of fried rice and poached vegetables for two costs $25, you know its time to try your luck in the kitchen, so this was what I whipped up for dinner last Sunday. A 3-mushroom soup.


Boil some water.

Add fresh button mushrooms like the ones on the left.

Add Chinese dried mushrooms (don’t forget to soak first).

Add some canned straw mushrooms.

Add 1 chopped tomato.

Add some chopped celery stalk.

Then some salt, pepper and my secret ingredient – a dash of lemon juice.

Heat to boil, turn off fire, let it sit for 5 minutes. Done!

Tastes great with lightly buttered bread. Yummiez.

Cost: less than $10. Time to prepare: 15 minutes. Nutritional value: Don’t know although I did hear mushrooms have zero nutritional value, he he. 🙂

    Yay! I love mushrooms! Next time try adding cream, to make it cream of mushroom. If you can blend them mushrooms 😉

    I tried that experiment once and it didn’t turn out the way I expected. I’m thinking of roasted portobello mushrooms with cheese next, ha ha.
