    How do you do yours?

    I've tried grilling them with frylite but they just turn out rubbery. Any low syn tips to get the texture like fried mushrooms?

    Personally I don't fry mushrooms that much but when I do I use a little oil put the lid on & let them saute :)

    i usually only have them in stir frys but when have had them on their own a quick way is put them in a bowl, with a tiny bit of water then nuke them for about a minute and they are lovely (or my taste buds are on the blink - please let me know lol

    I slice them, fry them slowly in fry light with some seasoning, lea & perrins and Maggi liquid seasoning. Then if I want to use syns I'll add a tsp of low fat spread (1syn) stirred in at the very end to give a buttery flavour

    I chop mine and put them in a bowl with chopped tomatoes and spring onions, garlic or anything else I want with them. I cook them in the microwave, and they taste OK.

    If you add a squeeze of lemon juice while cooking it really brings out the flavour!

    I've never ever fried mushrooms. Just put them in a pan with a tiny amount of water and cook that way.

    I dry fry mushrooms in a non-stick frying pan.

    I also like to put as spoonful of Sainsbury's lemon and piri piri marinade in a huge mushroom and bake it in the oven or put it on the barbeque. 1 syn per tablespoon.

    I like large flat mushrooms or portabello mushrooms roasted in the oven with salt, pepper, ground garlic flakes/garlic salt and topped with chopped bacon and a HexA of cheese. Yum yum! xx

    I find that there is no need to add fat at all. Just slice them and dry fry them (with a bit of garlic is good). If you have a non-stick pan they tend to "sweat" so you can cook them in their own juices.

    For me there is nothing like mushrooms fried properly with oil and I syn the oil. I use about 2 teaspoons and call it 4 syns. I cook onions and garlic with them.......absolutely delicious.
