Mushrooms in a paprika garlic sauce


Garlic chilli mushrooms are one of my brother’s favourite starters and I must admit he makes the mushrooms taste gorgeous. I hope my mushroom recipe will do him justice! Love you Bro x


380g closed cup mushrooms
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 long green chilli sliced
3 garlic cloves crushed
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
Salt to taste


1. Heat olive oil, butter and half of the crushed garlic with chilli. Keep on a low heat for 3-4 minutes

2. Add paprika to the oil and then mix in the mushrooms making sure they are all coated well in the garlic oil. Throw in the rest of the garlic. Stir well

3. Turn up the heat a little so that the mushrooms naturally release their water. Season with salt to taste. As soon as the mushrooms are cooking in its water cover for 10 minutes

4. Dilute the cornstarch powder in about 4 tbsp water and slowly mix into the mushrooms. This will thicken the water making a great sauce. Stir well, once thickened the mushrooms are ready to serve. If you wish the sauce to be thin then add a little water. Also adjust salt if needed. Enjoy!
