Spicy Paprika Mushrooms

Posted: August 23, 2010 in Rants & Ramblings

I know there is no mention of food in the title of this Blog but you can’t have wine and friends without food can you?

Yesterday we had been out all day so we wanted something quick and easy for dinner so we bought some sausages, jacket potatoes and Portobello mushrooms.  When we got home this seemed a bit bland to me so I thought I would try something with the mushrooms using homegrown white onions and garlic from a friend who had grown them in her garden.

I sliced the mushrooms into thick slices, diced up the onions and finely chopped the garlic.

The garlic and onions went into a frying pan with a few glugs of olive oil and a generous helping of dried chillies.  I fried them on a low heat so they didn’t burn and once the onions went soft I added the mushrooms.  I turned up the heat and fried the mushrooms until they started to brown off, then I added lots of Paprika and kept adding it until I liked the taste.

Finally I added about 200ml of Creme Fraiche and kept stirring it in until the Creme  Fraiche was hot.

It tasted bloody lovely.
