Portobello Mushroom Bake

11 Jun

I’ve been neglecting this spectacular little blog of mine over recent months due to life, work and domestic stresses. But I’m back and plan to update more often as I still have so many readers (which is terribly humbling!).

Tonight I made a Portobello Mushroom Bake from a recipe in one of my favourite cook books The Garden of Vegan (which you can get here). As the recipe is available from its creator I shan’t plagiarize here but post an, albeit slightly grainy, image of the finished result. Needless to say it was delicious!

This recipe called for ‘Braggs’ which is a soy sauce-like liquid amino. This is available via mail order in the UK but not easy to get hold of in Edinburgh, so I substituted with (vegan) Tamari.

Mushroom Bake

15 Sep
I spent today having a spring clean (in the autumn, as I hate to conform), so have spent the day battling with dust mites, my foulest foe. In short, & without getting too gory, I’ve  been sneezing most of today, so energy has been low,  I decided to veer from the weekly menu for a night and have a hearty mushroom bake.

Another music-less day, though I did listen to a couple of talks by the wonderful Stephen Fry as I cooked.
