the recipe calls for a pound if relatively plainly flavoured mushrooms.
so it ain't about that.

how do you know you don't like mushrooms, bgus? have you tried many varieties in different dishes? is it a psycological thing? are you not a fungi to be with?


i wpuld go with cws's suggestion to replace the texture of the mushrooms with eggplant (skinned), and add some minced shiitakes or even just the water from rehydrated shiitakes to add shroom flavour.

quorn & a touch of umami paste.i've tried it a couple of times and,as a committed carnivore,i think it's ok.it's made from mycoprotein which is basically the mushroom family so works in with original recipe & is soy free

I spent a lot of money on booze,birds & fast cars.The rest I just squandered.
