This was so bland :(


This recipe saved my life! Actually that might be a slight exaggeration - but all the same, thank you for this recipe. I usually do portobello mushrooms with garlic and mustard, in veg. stock with penne pasta, then topped off with grated lemon rind and parsley. BUT... the frost got my parsley and the last of the lemon rind was in my gin and tonic! I knew I needed something to replace them. So I turned to VegWeb and your recipe provided the answer: sesame seeds! Perfect. So much so that this modified version will now be my standard. Oh, and I also added some chili flakes. Yum yum!
