Mushrooms with Cinnamon & Garlic
March 19, 2019

Mushrooms are a powerhouse of nutrients.  So if you can get your children enjoying them you’re onto a great thing.  This recipe is going to help.  The trick is to cook mushrooms in a way they almost caramelise and don’t stew in their juices – cooking them on their own with nothing else in the pan is the way to do this.  Enjoy these mushrooms with the complimentary flavours of garlic, lemon & cinnamon.  This recipe is adapted from the brilliant chef, Yotam Ottolenghi.
