  • 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 field mushrooms, cut into large chunks

    Place olive oil and butter in a large frying pan on high heat. Sauté the mushrooms for 5 minutes. Now add the garlic, parsley and lemon juice and cook for a further 3 minutes. Season well with salt and pepper.
