Chicken of the Woods

per 1 cup chicken of the woods
1 Tbsp unsalted butter or olive oil
1 clove garlic
Salt to taste, perhaps 1/2 tsp.
paprika and chopped herbs to taste

Keep it simple with chicken of the woods mushrooms. Saute mushrooms in butter (or olive oil if you prefer) and a little salt till tender, or about 5 minutes. Taste a piece to see if you like it before adding garlic and heavy cream. Add garlic and cream and simmer for another 5 minutes.

This makes a great topping for mashed potatoes, perhaps with a little grated parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of paprika and chopped chives or other herbs.
