I don't know about you and your family but we are major mushroom fans. We almost always eat them cooked given I've read several reports that raw mushrooms are less than healthful.
This week I tried a new recipe, nothing complex but certainly tasty. These are my basic ingredients: About one pound fresh button mushrooms, sliced (these were pretty huge), 4 cloves garlic, chopped small, 3 or 4 green onions (scallions) and about 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leafed parsley.
Ok, well I didn't show the 1/2 cup of butter I stared with.. but that ingredient gives the mushrooms a nice rich flavor. These mushrooms are a great side dish so while they are cooking you have time to throw some fish or other protein on the grill.
To prepare the mushrooms simply put the butter in the pan, add the butter and let it melt. Once the butter is melted add the garlic, onions, mushrooms and 1/2 the parsley. Give that a stir, turn up the heat to high and let those babies brown up. You do need to turn them intermittently so they brown on all sides.
After about 15 - 20 minutes, depending on how many BTU's you've got going on in your cooktop the mushrooms should be getting nice and brown and should look a bit like this:
This dish makes a nice vegetarian (not vegan) main course, just add a salad, some warmed French Bread.. you have yourself a meal.
