Mushroom Stroganoff

I recently became a Grandma for the second time: a young mama I might add, not Nanny or Grandma. Baby is feeding well and mum is already back in size 14 clothes, enjoying food that previously gave her heartburn or made her sick. Wanting to pamper my youngest daughter, I made Mushroom Stroganoff, one of her favourites.



Peel and slice the onions. Bruise the cardamon pods with a pestle and mortar or rolling pin. Slice the mushrooms. Peel and crush the garlic.

Boil the rice using instructions on packet.

Add a dash of sunflower oil to a large pan and over a medium heat saute onions, garlic and cardamon until onion soft but not brown (approximately 5-7 minutes).

Add mushrooms to the pan and fry for a further 7-8 minutes.

Pour in brandy and stir until burnt off. Stir in the mustard.

Prepare a slurry by adding water to the cornflour and stirring until smooth. Add to the pan along with the cream. Season to taste.

Serve with the boiled rice, crusty bread and a side salad.

  1. I can see that your website probably doesn’t have much visits.

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
