Making your own sandwich spread is really easy, and the result is tasty, cheap, and you can make it healthier if you want to! :) For this mushroom spread, you’ll need an immersion blender — if you don’t have one, I highly suggest investing in a good one. You can also use it for cream soups and smoothies.
Here’s how it’s made…
For about 8 portions, slice up 250 grams of mushrooms, and stir it in a pan drizzled with olive oil until softened. You can also add some minced garlic if you like. Salt and pepper to taste, and add your favourite herb (fresh or dried — either is fine). Thyme and rosemary go especially well with mushrooms. When it’s done, put it in in a tall cup you can blend it in. Add around a cup of sour cream (or cream cheese) and a small teaspoon of mustard. Blend it smooth. You can keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for future use, or use immediately: a couple of spoonfuls for each slice of bread (pick your favourite, I like it on whole weat!), add some grated cheese if you like, and grill until golden. Serve with fresh veggies or a salad.
Feel free to improvise, add other spices, condiments! That’s the beauty of cooking. :)
