    Hi all,

    I was wondering whether any of you have a recipe for a low/no syn creamy mushroom sauce that doesn't curdle? I've tried a couple using quark and natural yoghurt but they all seem to curdle.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks xxx

    Hi hun, tbh I buy the colmans creamy garlic and mushroom sauce and its lovely. you need to add milk but to make the whole sacet its only 350ml which is one hexa of skimmed milk which between 4 people i usualy just have some cheese for the rest of my 3/4 of a hexa.

    now it is 6 syns a sachet but if you only having a portion it only works out at 1.5 plus 1/4 hexa so its not too bad! i usually have it with chikcne wrapped in bacon with the sauce and some hexa cheese :D

    HTH

    Mushrooms, lazy garlic, veg stock cube and enough water to simmer the mushrooms in - once cooked through and the water/stock reduced down then take off the heat and stir through f/f fromage frais - syn free and delicious and mine hasn't curdled yet - think the trick is taking it off the heat xxx

    Thank DD. Think I may have been going wrong by keeping the pan on the heat whilst adding the fromage frais. Will try it your way next time.

    Thanks again

    Try leaving your yoghurt etc to get to room temp before adding that always works for me.

    Unfortunately, what stops ordinary cream from curdling in sauces is the fat content!

    So using anything low-fat runs the risk of some curdling - but as has already been said, taking it off the heat so that the yogurt or fromage frais warms through in the residual heat, rather than being exposed to direct heat, will usually solve the problem.
