Stewed Mushrooms

A bowl of stew is my comfort meal. I love to have stew, both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian. When opting for a vegetarian stew, a mushroom stew is what I love the most. It is thick and delicious. It is also really easy to make.

To make mushroom stew, soak mushrooms in hot water for a few minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pot and cook onions in it. Add garlic, thyme, and cloves to it and cook. Now, add some fresh mushrooms and the soaked mushrooms in the prepared mixture and cook it. Pour the mushroom water into the pot. Cook it on low flame to make it thick.

You can also use stewed mushrooms in the recipe. If you don’t have them, here is a list of cremini mushrooms substitutes.
