How to serve garlic mushrooms?
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 long, every day. They are so good and versatile. The beauty is that they are available all year round so I am never short of fungi, 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 they can comfortably be a dish on their own. My kids really love those with a lovely homemade polenta - so nice, they really know what and how to eat those two.
These garlic-infused mushrooms make a fab side to a BBQ!
I chose to cook the chestnut or cremini type of mushrooms, I like them more than the white cup ones, they taste better, and they are nuttier.
I sometimes go for oyster mushrooms which I adore.

Morel mushrooms - a specialty that I grew up eating - are simply unbelievable.
