The first thing to say about this recipe is that it tastes much better than it looks! It's also a great recipe for using up cucumbers if you grow them at home, as we do.

This is an interesting vegetarian mushroom sauce that is nice poured over vegetables and especially hard-boiled eggs.

Method

  1. Add a good grind of black pepper to a small saucepan
  2. Melt half of the butter
  3. Saute the mushrooms in the butter for 4 minutes, turning often
  4. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm
  5. Melt the remaining butter
  6. Cook the cucumber cubes until they visibly 'wilt', about 5 minutes, stirring now and then
  7. Make a roux by sprinkling the flour over the buttery cucumber and mix well so all the fat is absorbed
  8. Add the dried dill and hot stock and blend into a sauce
  9. Bring to the boil and then reduce and simmer for 10 minutes
  10. Stir in the mushrooms
  11. Serve
