Mushrooms 'monte carlo'

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
225 grams Button mushrooms, washed
3 tablespoons Olive oil
1 small Sprig mint, finely chopped
1 Lemon; juiced
3 tablespoons Parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper

A light, refreshing supper dish that goes beautifully with eggs or on a bed of rice. Lovely for summer weather, when the cool minty and lemony flavours come into their own. Delicious hot or cold.

Leave the mushrooms whole if small, otherwise halve or quarter them according to size. Heat the oil in a heavy pan, add the mushrooms and cook gently. After 5 minutes, season with salt and pepper and add the chopped mint and lemon juice. Cook until the liquid is reduced.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve at once with a plain omelette, scrambled eggs or rice.
