Creamy Mushroom Silverbeet Sauce (Vegan , Gluten-free)

If you don’t have a vege garden yet I can only recommend to start one! The most easy things to grow are tomatoes and silverbeet, just to name a few. And my silverbeet is thriving this season!

So I have tried another dish with this yummy leafy green: a creamy silverbeet mushroom sauce – perfect with pasta! :)
