Ready In:




  • Clean the mushrooms by wiping them with a damp cloth.
  • Remove the stems, cutting them into very tiny pieces, then gently heating them in a non-stick pan for about two minutes.
  • Remove the pieces from the pan.
  • Grease a pan with the butter (or use a non-stick frypan).
  • Place the (stemless) mushrooms in the pan so each becomes a small'cup'.
  • Divide the mushroom pieces evenly between the'cups'.
  • Add a pinch of paprike and a dash of lemon juice to each'cup'.
  • Heat in the frypan until the mushrooms are cooked (but not broken up).

    I used this recipe to test my first ever mushrooms from my homegrown mushrooms. It highlighted the mushrooms perfectly accentuating the fresh taste without overwhelming it. Great combination.

    This was pretty good, I haven't ever tried mushrooms with lemon juice in them before it was diffrent. I liked them! THanks for posting

    I really enjoyed having these for dinner tonight. I sprinkled some 'Hot and sour sauce' over these and enjoyed these little cups of mushrooms with white bread. Very tasty and a great recipe! Thanks for sharing this, Sandra. I loved it! Thank You Very Much:)!


I live in Australia and love travelling. I am happily back in Canberra - the Nation's capital with the man of my dreams (for the last 39 years). Unfortunately I only have access to the internet at work, and with my new job there is very little time for the pleasure of reading up on 'Zaar. Have a cat, a dog, a husband, 2 children, 2 grandchildren and a very hectic life. Favourite hobby is collecting recipes and cooking. I love to cook - the more the better. And a deep interest in medieval times. More than half my recipes are not for food. Things like how to make artificial gemstones, how to rid a home of pests, correct behaviour and so forth. Very, very interesting stuff. As I get older, I am finding there doesn't seem to be enough time in a day to do what I want.
