These garlic “infused” mushrooms will take literally minutes to prepare and are truly delicious.
I make this as a side to any meat and I don’t know why but we particularly like this as a side to beef, a perfect combo.
Mushrooms, oh mushrooms, I can eat mushrooms all day and the beauty is that they are available all year round so I am never short of funghi and always have plenty in my fridge.
I know I like them with beef but truthfully they can be a side dish and can get combined with almost anything needless to say that they can comfortably be a dish on their own. My kids really love those with a nice homemade polenta – so nice, they really know what and how to eat those two.
I also choose to cook the chestnut type of mushrooms, I like them more than the white ones, sometimes I also go for oyster mushrooms. We also love adding some meat to it with a dash of cream and an onion – see this Creamy chicken and mushrooms for a super delicious recipe, something for meatarians too, truly yummy.
