Tips From Easy Recipes

Use a non-stick fry pan so as to avoid using oil in your cooking.

If you don't have a can of diced tomatoes, cut up 3 large tomatoes instead.

Be sure not to add seasoning and stock until the mushrooms are cooked. Otherwise they will sweat and your gravy will be too watery.
