  1. i cut the cumin in half, and added 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, and of course.... SALT the result was very tasty. i used honey mushrooms and chanterelles, cooking them on med-high for 10-15 mins so all the water could evaporate and they could dry out a bit, while get golden and crisp on all the edges. i will make this again. i also put them into a dry nonstick pan, no extra oil.
  2. These were easy and tasted okay, but we thought they were missing something. Perhaps a little chili powder or something with some heat. I used baby portabellos. I served them as side, but perhaps with sour cream in a wrap would be better. I may try them again and experiment with the spices.
  3. These just weren't what I was expecting. They seemed to stay very dry (even after adding some liquid to it while it was cooking.) The final product had an okay flavor (to me; my DH did not like) but the texture of all the many spices coating the mushrooms was almost grainy. Served these as a side dish but probably will go another route next time. Sorry.
  4. Quick, easy, light and tasty! I used swiss brown mushrooms, serving them in warm chapatis with sour cream. Will make again.
  5. These were tasty, and the turmeric turned the mushrooms a lovely golden color too. They made a very nice side dish all by themselves. Thanks!
