5. Scallops with mushrooms and garlic butter

Mushrooms are a must for me when it comes to a satisfying roast meal, and I’ve never really been able to relate to people who don’t like mushrooms at all. Seared mushrooms bring out their appetizing natural umami, and with their creamy texture and wonderful bite, they’re the perfect addition to a savory roast meal. For these scallops with mushrooms and garlic butter from Romy London, I use king oyster mushrooms. With their thick stems, they are ideal for slicing and mincing, and they soak up the aromas of garlic and thyme wonderfully.

Homemade naan is usually cooked in a cast iron skillet or nonstick skillet. It lacks the charred flavor of the clay oven, but it is soft and very tender, puffy here and there, and very delicious. This naan bread from Namita Tiwari goes very well with soups, curries and Indian-style curry dishes with sauces.
