A few weeks ago, I saw some portobello mushrooms which were on sale in NTUC. I love mushrooms and I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like mushrooms. It’s a pity we can’t get any of the Western wild mushrooms like chanterelle and such. Portobello is the closest I can find that could be labelled as ‘field flat mushrooms’ and I used these to make one of Jamie Oliver’s mushroom recipes.

Marinade shrooms in olive oil, garlic, chili flakes, salt, lemon juice and top with a knob of butter


Bake in the oven and serve as a side.


The mushrooms will be juicy and flavourful and of course, best eaten warm. Remember this recipe when you next see a packet of portobello sitting patiently to be picked up. 😀
