Limahl Asmall

"When you're in a hurry for something quick and nutritious, rustle up this easy mushroom and spinach recipe and serve over hot buttered toast. It's easy to personalise the flavours with garlic butter and thyme, or add in a couple chopped artichokes from the jar for a real treat. "

Cook Time: 5 mins | Servings: 2 | Difficulty: easy

250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced 1/2 cm thick
250g any mushrooms, or sliced courgette
2 handfuls spinach
2 handfuls watercress
2 tsp butter
2 tsp olive oil
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 clove garlic, finely sliced
1 pinch salt and pepper

  1. Slice the mushrooms 1/2 a cm thick so they retain a bit of 'bite' when they are served. Add the butter, garlic and thyme to a non-stick frying pan and fry for a minute over a medium heat, making sure the garlic does not brown, then add the mushrooms.
  2. Toss the mushrooms in the butter and saute for 3-4 minutes, then add the spinach and toss together until wilted.
  3. Season well with salt and pepper and serve over hot buttered toast!
