I love mushrooms! But, I wasn’t always a mushroom fan. In fact, when I was a kid, I used to hate mushrooms. Why? I don’t know, because I had never tried them. I just judged the mushrooms by looking at them, and somehow decided that they are ugly and tasteless. I know, I was a strange kid. I didn’t even eat vegetables. I thought they were like “grass”, so I used to eat only meat. How ironic!
I think my first encounter with mushrooms was during a dinner with my parents. They were eating fish (I also didn’t eat fish that time. I thought they “stink”, so I was eating some beef!), and as an appetizer, they decided to eat some mushrooms with melted cheese. They forced me to try it, and guess what? I liked it! Since then, I’m a big mushroom fan.
This recipe (I cannot even call this a recipe, because it’s so simple!) was an improvised one I came up last week, and it became my dinner. Enjoy!
