Cooking for a family of five that has varied likes and dislikes uses up most of my cooking mojo so it's very rare that I cook a dish just for myself. In reading Diana Henry's A Change of Appetite, Soy Mushrooms with Egg Ribbons and Black Sesame caught my attention and fit this week's I Heart Cooking Club's theme of chicken and/or eggs. The caveat: it was intended to serve only one. I considered making a larger batch to share. Alas, I had only enough mushrooms for a single serving ;).
For this recipe, sautéed mushrooms flavoured with soy sauce were made a little richer with a small amount of crème fraîche and were topped with strips of a one-egg omelette
and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Diana describes this dish as a "lip-smacking serving of umami". I describe it as a delicious way to spoil oneself!
The recipe for this easy breakfast for one - or lunch/dinner with a salad - is from A Change of Appetite and can also be found here.
