Ballyhoura mushrooms in a coconut and saffron sauce. Sublime!

A lovely comforting late lunch of roasted buckwheat and Ballyhoura mushrooms in a coconut saffron sauce with a side of mixed leaves, Brazil nuts and this amazing coconut and coriander reduction I picked up at the Olive Factory​ in Kinsale yesterday. Wash down with a glass of pink elderflower cordial and sparkling water.

How beautiful are Ballyhoura mushrooms. I got a little selection of them on Saturday in Midleton.
I sautéed them in a pan with a little olive oil and garlic
In a seperate pot I heated 1/2 a tin of coconut milk
2 crushed garlic cloves
A pinch of saffron strands
Reduce and leave to simmer
Add mushrooms and finish with a sprinkle of parsley.

For the elderflower:
I have a wonderful next door neighbour Dee who kindly clipped the elderflowers from our garden and made cordial.
I will have to find out her winning recipe so refreshing.


Deeelicious quick and easy!
