I made a yummy meal last night from a recommendation on here. I mixed some dried herbs into cottage cheese, then spooned it onto cooked large flat mushrooms and stuck it under the grill to brown. served it on some fresh spinach leaves (raw). It was delish and much nicer than I expected. In fact it was no nice I might do it again tonight! Thanks to whoever posted the original recipe!

Mushrooms are allowed on SS+ (KD told me they were missed out of the booklet by mistake!). I do the same recipe as above, also chop up my chicken fillet with some mushroom and cook it together in my 'dry fry' pan, which is equally as lovely, especially with your chosen herbs and spices added.

I also adore raw mushrooms, so occasionally have one as a snack! :eek:

So, how many mushrooms do you use as your 2 tablespoons? I guess 3 or so?

Just out of interest why don't CD give the weights of the veg instead of tablespoons?

I agree too - it makes life difficult!
My cdc suggested using a potato peeler to cut courgette into ribbons like pasta and cooking in stock to serve with chicken. x

I suppose it's because there are so many different vegetables available they couldn't be bothered lol, and people might get different types of veg that weigh different amounts?

I agree though, would be so much easier!

I'm interested to know that too.....I sorta went off the rails last week (with salad and chicken....but added a couple of naughty bits) so I had my 810 week a week early, but next time I do it I'd like to do it properly with some nice recipes. There is another thread for 810 recipes, but everyone has their own faves and ideas xxx

Could you grate some mushrooms on the large hole side and measure it this way? of course it will mean you will have to use the grated mushrooms to stuff some chicken or even add it to a soup. :)

A good guess would be two big portabello mushrooms - they would fit into two big spoons and are ideal for filling with the cottage cheese or whatever! :)

I'm so with you all on the measuring using spoons - its so hard!

The first day on SS+ I had some cod and 1 spear of asparagus, thought that 1 spear would be about 2 tablespoons, turns out when I cut it up it barerly filled 1.

I really want to try the Cottage cheese and mushroom idea suggested. Do you think 1 of the really large flat mushrooms is more than 2 tablespoons?
