Hey there Smiley
I wrote a lot of exams during the past week and so I somehow forgot to go shopping. I only had store bought potato dumplings, cream, canned mushrooms, onions and instant gravy. So of course the single student called mum and she helped me out with a wonderful recipe:

Ingredients (for one person Wink):
- 1 onion
- 1 small can mushrooms
- 7 fl. oz. (200ml) cream
- tbs butter
- pepper, salt, paprika powder
- 1 cube instant gravy (i don't know if you got instant gravy cubes, as well, but one cube is for half a cup liquid)

Melt the butter in a pan and chop the onion. Add the onion and wait until they are glazed. Pour off the water from the mushrooms and add them to the pan. Reduce the heat and let it braise for about 15 minutes. Then add as much salt, pepper and paprika powder as you like. I suggest you to try some shrooms while you season, but don't forget that you will add cream later on, which needs to be flavoured, too! Stir well, braise for another 5 minutes and then add the cream. Raise the temperature until the sauce cooks and add the instant gravy cube. Stir well and wait for it to dissolve. Try some of the sauce and add some season if it's not spicy enough.

I especially like to eat the sauce together with potato dumplings, escalope, chicken tenderloin, but there are other good combinations for sure Smiley

In the pan:


On my dumplings:


I hope you like it Cheesy
Have a great day!

ah I'm glad you like it! I hope it turns out good! I'm sure you can substitute the cube with the powder. Please let me know how you like it when you had it for dinner tonight Wink
My mum will be happy to hear about that, sure I'll tell her  Grin
btw: what are you going to serve it with?

Thanks.  I hope that the powder will be an okay substitute.  I'm sorry that I didn't see this earlier.  I am just on my way to try to make this for dinner.  Since our dinners are usually meat free and somewhat light. (Yea, with all that cream. lol)  I plan to make a veggie salad with it and serve the mushroom special as is.  Not as an accompliment to anything.  Gone to start it up.  DH is getting hungry.  Hope he will eat them.  He doesn't like many veggies.

Now I'm nervous Wink I hope he likes it although it's mushrooms! I also hope it's enough for two! With the dumplings it was plenty for two of my dinners, but as a main dish for two? Hmmm Undecided

Aww.  You shouldn't have been nervous.  I couldn't get him to eat them from the minute he asked what I was making and he heard mushrooms, he said that that was not for him.  Sometimes he acts like a child.  Oh well.  I still made it cause I mostly give in and not make things I like (which is mostly what he doesn't.  A kind of compromise I guess. Huh)  Any how, I had to make a change cause I ran out of the non meat gravy powder. (I try not to mix meat and dairy) and it came out absolutely heavenly.  My small can of mushrooms was very small.lol. so I used less cream.  I know that it is an easy recipe but I am in love.  I can't tell you how much I loved it.  Even hubby got up from the sofa to come see what made me so happy.lol.  I am differently making this again.  My DIL is gonna love this.  She too likes mushrooms.  (I sometimes eat them right out of the can)  Next time I'll sprinkle some parsley on top for presentation.
Thank you so much!!!

Oh wow! Your comment definitely made my morning, although I'll soon be heading out for my math exam Cheesy (and that means much Wink) I'm really glad you like it! Hey and parsley is a great idea for decoration. Perhaps I could add some garden herbs when the last 5 minutes of cooking begin... I will try that next time. Sure that would enhance the flavour!

Hey, You've made my month with this recipe.  I always have heavy cream in the fridge,  (The kids love things with it) and I usually have the mushrooms cause I'm sneaky and add it to dishes when DH isn't looking. lol.  Garden herbs is a great idea.  I'm thinking green onions just before I take it off the fire\range (Did you notice that I love onions too? lol)  I can't wait to try this on my kids.  Esp. my DIL.
Good luck on your math exam!!!  You're a winner!
Thanks! Cheesy

This looks really good!! I love mushrooms.
I think you should post this in the vege forum too, 'cause I'm sure lots of vegetarians would like this, but I don't think many of us venture into this forum very much!
