For the garlic mushroom sauce: Spray a frying pan with some Frylight/Pam spray, add garlic
Add the mushrooms and small onion.
Add a little bit of the 200ml of stock at a time (save about 50ml of the stock to make the sauce) and cook the mushrooms/onion until golden.
To the 50ml of stock, add the extra light Philadelphia and mustard and whisk until smooth.
Pour over the mushrooms and simmer on a low heat until sauce thickens, top with some freshly chopped Italian parsley.
Serve your steaks with the Courgette Wild Rice Pilaf and Creamy Garlic Mushrooms.

I love wild rice, have you tried the red rice? That is similar in texture and taste too.

could you use quark instead of Philadelphia?
yes you could use quark. I just prefer the creaminess of the Philadelphia
You could use mustard powder instead too so quark fat free and powder no extra syns 🙂

Can the mushroom sauce be frozen? I have mushrooms that need using up but have other meals planned for today.

Hi Teresa, I haven't tried so I couldn't say for sure, you may need to add a little water or stock when reheating.

IS there an option anywhere to print this recipe? I can't find it 🙂
