Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I had been wondering what to do with some leftover dried porcini mushrooms and this was perfect! I cut the recipe in half and it was very, very good! Next time I'll put in the full amount of garlic (I love garlic)!Made FYC

Loved the mashed potatoes which I scaled back to 1 serve and a very generous one too, I used dried shitake mushrooms as that is what I had on and soaked in the milk mix as directed and once soft if removed the stems and chopped up the mushrooms before adding to the mashed potatoes, thank you TeresaS, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
