I've always liked Button mushrooms - you can probably consider them as one of my favourite veggies (well some consider it Non - Veg as well) They go well on Pizzas, pastas, soups, semi - gravy dishes, Noodles and what not. But I personally prefer them with a nice hot roti and some plain rice. Of course it has be a gravy then!! And it also needs to be packed with a burst of flavors..
