Liz’s mushroom sauce

Serves 4 (serving size 80g)

I love to serve this versatile sauce with steak, but it can just as easily be served on toast for breakfast! 


It's not a traditionally 'saucy' recipe but it has fantastic fresh flavours and is an easy way to sneak extra vegetables on my plate without adding all the cream found in a traditional mushroom sauce.


300g mushrooms (I usually use button mushrooms, but any type will do)

1 clove of garlic, crushed

2 sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped

2 tsp of balsamic vinegar

Cracked pepper to garnish

Cooking instructions

Saute the mushrooms and garlic in a small saucepan over low heat for about 6-10 minutes until the mushrooms are nice and soft, stir occasionally.


Remove from heat and stir in balsamic vinegar and thyme.


Garnish generously with cracked pepper.
