A simple Mushroom saute, my moms way! Mom is not here yet,, but hey we all love our Mom's creations. This dish is a quick throw in for a weeknight or a lazy weekend. Some pre-packed sliced white mushrooms, onions and spices! and there you go.
Mom usually serves it as snack on toasted bread. Make this with finely chopped mushrooms and serve as pate or dip. Add to greens and sprouts for the umami in the salad. Top an olive oil glazed pizza base.. Serve as side with Lentil soup(Daal) and flat bread(Roti). The possibilities are endless. Mushrooms provide great immune support, are a good source of Vit b12 and many vitamins and minerals!
