  • 1 kg mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh parsley


  1. In a saucepan put the oil, add finely chopped onion and 50 ml of water and simmer over low heat until the water decreases.
  2. Now add the mushrooms, if they are bigger, cut them into slices, in halves, in 4, as you prefer, and if they are small, they can be left whole.
  3. Sprinkle salt now and put the lid on, let it simmer over low heat. From the salt, the mushrooms leave their juice, so there is no need to add water.
  4. When the water has dropped, taste the mushrooms and if you want them to penetrate more, add a little more water (about 50 ml) and leave the same, covered and over low heat, to simmer.
  5. Mix 1 tablespoon of flour with 100 ml of water and pour over the mushrooms. Now add pepper, nutmeg and finely ground garlic.
  6. Stir and bring to the boil, then turn off the heat immediately.
  7. Sprinkle with finely chopped greens.
