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.

Ready?

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.
