Instructions

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms Sauce

  • Give the mushrooms a quick wash.
  • Slice length-ways and add the mushrooms to a pan on medium heat, frying for about five-six minutes. No oil needed 🙂
  • Chop the onion and garlic and add to the pan. Fry for another five minutes or so, until soft.
  • Add the cream, salt and pepper, parsley, soy and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for another five minutes. Voilà!

Baked Potato

  • Microwave the large potato for nine minutes. A medium potato needs seven minutes and a small potato needs five minutes. To add extra potatoes allow an extra four minutes for a large potato, three minutes for a medium potato and two minutes for a small potato. This is using a 1000w microwave – adjust for slightly longer or shorter if yours is a higher or lower power. Don't forget to pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times.
  • Chop the halloumi into squares and fry in oil for about five minutes.
  • When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
  • Add salt and pepper to the potato.
  • Pour the creamy mushroom over the potato followed by fried halloumi on top.
  • Enjoy!
