Memories of car trips to collect mushrooms with my family, inspired me to make this dish.

We used to set out, often in fog, armed with baskets, and boxes to a friend’s farm. They had giant mushrooms growing wild.

Our treat was to pick the fresh mushrooms, peel back the outer layer, sprinkle a bit of salt on the mushroom, just simply sit in the field and eat.

I have always been a huge fan of mushrooms and over the recent years we have been lucky to see a wider variety of mushrooms for sale at our local markets and supermarkets. Cooked in the EasyOven, this simple dish uses Button / Brown mushrooms for this recipe, but you can use any variety you like.

You will also see that the recipe uses Basmati rice. I find that Basmati Rice seems to cook well, separates the grains and doesn’t go like glue
