Mmmm Mmmm Mushrooms!
I am sharing a delicious recipe for marvelous mushrooms for which I yearn from time to time. It is great as a side dish or on top of hamburgers or steaks.
In the past, I was always afraid of cooking mushrooms. Somehow, tales from my youth taught me that every so often, someone chooses the wrong mushroom in the forest and that’s the end of everything. As an adult, I am more trusting of mushrooms, especially since I do not pick my own. Brewers Organics provides great, trustful mushrooms for all!
Marvelous Mushroom Recipe
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
1 lb baby portobella mushrooms (also called baby bellas or crimini)
1 Tablespoon sage
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup cooking sherry
1. In a pan, heat olive oil, then add garlic, mushrooms and sage. Saute until the mushrooms are tender or about 5 minutes.
2. Sprinkle with salt or pepper, according to your taste.
3. Add the cooking sherry and cook for about 3 more minutes.
Trying to get my 4 and 6 year old kids to try cooked mushrooms is a bit of a battle to say the least. Enticing them with facts helps a little:
-A mushroom is a body of a fungus.
-Mushrooms were once considered magical by Egyptian pharoahs.
-In ancient Rome, mushrooms were believed to give warriors god-like strength.
Calling mushrooms “little umbrellas” or the mushroom caps “car wheels” almost works, but if your little ones are not as impressed with eating them as much as playing with them, you are not alone. They’ll come around in a few (or many) years like I did. I love them now!
