Step 4

In a large frying pan, heat some vegetable oil. Add chopped onion and fry under medium heat until soft. Add garlic, mushrooms and herbs to the frying pan. Cook for 10-15mins under medium heat until soft. Stir often so that the mushrooms do not stick to the bottom of the pan. When done, remove from heat, stir in 1/2 the lemon juice and keep mushrooms in a warm oven.
