Instead of adding heavy cream to this Roasted Red Pepper and Mushroom Penne with Shrimp we’ve opted for whole milk (3.25%) so that it contains a little less saturated fat and therefore can be a more health conscious, yet still indulgent, option when craving something creamy and cozy. As the temperature drops, this dish will feel like comfort in a bowl!
Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog that I’ve been writing for eleven years. I live in beautiful Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where I happily whip up delicious creations in my little green kitchen. Being a chef as well as a food writer and cookbook author, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. This past year I started my own jumbo gourmet cookie business, and if you’re ever in Saskatoon stop by the Farmers’ Market on the weekend and grab a cookie! Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and three cats.
Rich and flavourful biryani made with mushrooms. It is an easy dish to cook in 30-40 minutes with minimum ingredients. This is perfect to cook when you have guests over or make it for dinner parties quickly You are going to love this flavourful rice.
An authentic mushroom biryani is always slow cooked on “dum” in one pot. It is an ancient technique of cooking on “dum” as they believe it brings out its uniqueness and originality. This is done by cooking the rice and veggies under steam by not allowing the steam to pass. The food gets cooked in its own steam and juices on slow fire, and it infuses the flavours and aroma of the herbs and spices in the food. You can enjoy this with thick yogurt.
Looking for that special recipe for a lovely Sunday lunch or special dinner. We have one for you: Spinach Ricotta Cannelloni with Mushroom Sauce. This dish screams flavor and deliciousness from the beautiful baked al-dente pasta right into that creamy spinach cheesy filling. Taking it over the top with a creamy white wine mushroom cream sauce. Truly a mouth-watering experience for sure.
Shepherd’s pie was requested but it’s not my favourite. Why not make a filling that I really like and top it with some mashed something or other and just call it a day? I really wanted something that was a bit spicy, like a Jamaican beef patty. My beef/mushrooms patty filling is the right consistency, it’s spicy and the family likes them as much as I do. There was no reason it wouldn’t work.
And that is how Shepherd’s Patty Pie was born. I took my usual blend and extend beef/mushroom filling and topped with it with mashed sweet potatoes to balance out the heat and everyone got what they wanted.
