Recipe of the Week – 18th April 2016 – Mushroom Stroganoff

  

This is a recipe that I love to do on cold evenings, and it is a great way of getting the children to eat up any mushroom surplus if I over-estimate quantities! There are some more exotic variations on this veggie staple, but I find simplicity works best here.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 large or 2 small onions, sliced

6 sticks of celery, chopped, including leaves

500g mushrooms (button mushrooms halved work well or a mixture, chopped)

50g butter

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp Herbes de Provence or mixed herbs

2 tbs plain flour

80 ml plain natural yogurt or soured cream

300ml good quality vegetable stock from bouillon

Salt and pepper

Handful fresh parsley, chopped

Method

1. Gently heat the butter in a large saucepan and sauté the onions and celery over a low heat for approximately 5 minutes.

2. Add the mushrooms and cook gently for a further 4 minutes.

3. Add the dried herbs and stir in the flour to cook for 1 minute.

4. Add the stock and seasoning and cook gently for 10 minutes.

5. Allowed to cool away from the heat and stir in the yoghurt or soured cream and taste for seasoning, then heat very gently.

6. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve with white Basmati rice or crusty bread.
