    I’ve never mixed nuts in with mushrooms before so this will be something new to try. Also, I really like the idea of cinnamon and cardamom with it all…definitely going to try this, thanks, Ulrike. We have mushrooms every week here as we both love them. Usually I just fix them lightly sautéed and serve them as a side dish, so now this week, I have other recipes to try for them. I’m with Son 2…bring on the mushrooms!
