Fresh Mushrooms In Cheese Sauce

Jo loves fresh mushrooms and cheese and what better way to cook both together . It was the best marriage for these two ingredients . The sauteed garlic add extra flavor to these two best matched cheese and shrooms :)  For me, this is the most adventurous match of two distinct flavor in my cooking experience . If you are a cheese lover and a shrooms lover you will woo by this dish. Eat it with garlic baguette or pita bread. It is delicious......a fusion taste of east and west!
I can imagine how it will taste as I cook, adding a little of this and a little of that and eventually a new dish is kids love it each time I present something new on the table.  Daddy is not adventurous at all when it comes to new dishes. His famos words " keep to your old recipes that try not to be too adventurous "  LOL!  Who cares...when the home chef has her say , she will take everything in her own stride and just don't let her eyes catch hold of any spices around the kitchen counter, she will grab whatever is available and start shaking and sprinkling them on to the food that is being cooked on the stove and the outcome something not in the recipe at all BUT will turn out fantastic for example this fresh mushrooms in cheese sauce !

Jo and myself had the whole plate to ourselves .  Less man more share as the saying goes :p  The cheese sauce was so delicious that the last drop was wiped cleaned and into our mouth. You tell me yummy a not ? Of course, this is one very special fresh mushrooms in cheese sauce. 

the fresh coriander adds flavor to the dish too....

this is best taken with baguette and pita bread
 and fried chicken pieces...yummyumm

the delicious cheese sauce infused into the fresh mushrooms....
awwwww...this is so good I wanna cook this again !

Fresh Mushroms In Cheese Sauce


1 pkt of fresh white beech mushrooms - cleaned
1 pkt of fresh Shimeiji mushrooms - cleaned
3 pips of garlic - finely chopped
3 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp of black pepper
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
30g mozzarella cheese
50g cheddar cheese

2 sprigs chinese coriander leaves

Preparation :

Sautee garlic with the olive oil till fragrant, add in the black pepper and stir fry for a few seconds, add in the mushrooms and stir fry till well combine. The mushroom will secrete liquid out  and this will be just nice for sauce. Add in the cheese and let it simmer slowly until all the cheese has melted and infused into the mushrooms. When about to dish out, add coriander leaves as garnishing.

Serve it hot with baguettes and pita breads.

Enjoy !
