Hello friends, summer is approaching, skies are clearer, the weather is warmer and the beaches are open. Isn’t that exciting?
So today, we are talking about food. Yum!! I love to explore when it comes to food and I always joke that my children will not be able to tell their ancestry judging only by their food. I will eat and cook any and every dish from any part of the world because why not?
I also love to whip up dishes with whatever ingredients I have because I am the queen of 20 to 30 minute dishes, especially in the summer time. I generally always eat fresh food so I obviously do not want to stand in the kitchen for an extra hour after a tedious day at work.
This particular dish though, I first had it at a friend’s house. And I loved the dish so much that when I got home, I tried to figure out what ingredients and spices I tasted that made me enjoy it and then I tried to recreate it.
Since first eating it till now, I have put my own spin on it and it is one of the healthy dishes I love to make when I want to have something light.
I hope you try it and let me know how it turns out for you.
This is a simple dish with very few everyday ingredients
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
- Mushrooms (Duh!
- Chicken (seasoned and marinated)
- Bell Peppers (optional)
- Green Onions (optional)
- Coconut Milk
- 1 medium bulb of onions
- 1 Scotch bonnet
- Minced Garlic
- Seasoning (Stock cube, curry, thyme, white pepper)
- Pour two cooking spoons of coconut oil into a dry pot and allow to heat up
- Add in the chopped onions, scotch bonnet, ginger and garlic and stir for 2-3 minutes. Then add in all your seasoning.
- Add in your chicken, mix together and allow to cook for 5 minutes.
- Add your chopped mushrooms, allow to cook for 2 minutes, then add your coconut milk
- After 10 minutes, add your green onions, green pepper and adjust the seasoning to your taste.
- If the sauce is too liquid, you can dissolve a table spoon of corn starch in cold water and add to the mix to thicken it up. I like mine a bit thick so that I can use it as a sauce for my rice.
There you have it! 25 minutes and you have yourself a delicious mushroom dish. I always enjoy having this dish and I am sure you will too.
