These scum with mushrooms and ham are one of the favorite dishes of spoon from my husband. I started them to wanting to avoid the fats in recipes after a holiday of Christmas during which we had caught some that another unwanted kilo.

It was necessary to continue to eat well, but had to lower the rate of fat, so I decided to be verdinas with mushrooms was the scum at home. Sometimes we think that to make a plate of vegetables is good we need to add sausages and meat give more consistency.

And indeed with sausages they gain in consistency, but my fat over not going and I always cook sausage and sausage apart to not add more fat to the dish. This version of scum with mushrooms and ham is my perfect.

The issue is that we already saw last Christmas, as almost all threads almost always. I made my beluga lentils without sausage and wanted to change third. I had at home a scum and I had bought in the market mushrooms and mushrooms, so I had clear the combination would be that day.
