    Sounds mental but i love mushrooms, And when i say that i really do!! i have them with most meals and now im on weight watchers they are free points! YAY :D

    I was wondering if anyone has a fab WW receipes made with....you guessed it mushrooms!!

    And i thought others might be able to share what there fav foods are to see if anyone has any receipes for them too.

    I love mushrooms too but sadly am the only one in the house that does.
    try cooking some mushrooms in a little stock and garlic til nearly all the liquid has gone then stir in some low fat creme fraiche, you can use fromage frais or plain yog if you prefer, and serve with pasta.

    it is yummy and you only need to point the creme fraiche and the pasta. I have got a recipe for mushroom madras somewhere too but dont know it off by heart !!

    I too was going to recommend low fat créme fraiche. Not too much cos it's still highish, but you don't need much. I would add tarragon too though :) I think it would go nice on some toasted bread for a snack (so obviously wouldn't want to use too much créme fraiche or it would go soggy!)

    have found it...well realised it was actually aubergine madras but i used mushrooms instead..

    mushrooms
    1 tspn curry paste (madras is preferable)
    low fat cooking spray
    small onion-chopped
    2 cloves garlic-crushed
    1/2 tspn cumin
    1/2 tspn ground corriander
    1/2 tspn garam masala
    100ml veg stock
    1 tblspn low fat plain yog
    chopped fresh corriander.

    fry onion & garlic in spray til soft (add little water if gets too dry)
    add spices & paste for ano 1 min
    add mushrooms and stock boil uncovered for 10 mins
    remove from heat stir in yog & fresh corriander

    mushroom madras...done ( in gordon ramsey voice)
    ps if you want a change from mushrooms use 1 aubergine cut in half & score flesh, spread with the curry paste and bake at 160 for 20 mins and add to recipe as above in place of mushrooms)

    enjoy:D
