Have you ever thought about preparing a mushroom and avocado canapé? I didn’t.

Who knows why we often think about matching vocado with salmon or dressing it as guacamole. The idea to pair mushrooms with avocado, sincerely, never crossed my mind before.

I saw a photo somewhere on the Internet. Unfortunately I didn’t save it – but the idea remained in my mind so that I decided to invent the recipe to realize it.

  4. Cook until onion softens and then add mushrooms.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are cooked.
