Garlic Mushrooms RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This is a Hub-UK recipe. It is a side dish and will be a first rate accompaniment for anything from sausages through to fillet steak. (NB Those of you from the UK should try this dish with Tesco's Cumberland sausage!) It is quick and easy to prepare, and can be done in advance.


4 small tomatoes skinned
4 cloves of garlic
Olive Oil
250 gms mushrooms
Herbes de Provence
(Thyme, Rosemary, Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Tarragon)
Black Pepper
Sea Salt


  • Put tablespoon of olive oil in saucepan. Add chopped or crushed garlic and sauté gently for 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Finely chop skinned tomatoes and add to pan.
  • Add mushrooms (quarter them if they are big as you want them to be bite size).
  • Add black pepper and sea salt (if you have never used it, try it!) to season.
  • Increase heat to bring mixture to bubbling then reduce to simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until tomatoes have pulped to form sauce.
  • Check seasoning and then serve.
