pulled out an old recipe that I had not made for years
and years for some holiday parties this year. Everyone
raved about it, most importantly my family!
lbs. small button fresh mushrooms (wipe off with a paper
trim off the end of the stems)
- 2/3 cup
red wine vinegar
- 1/3 cup
oil (olive or canola)
- 2-3 large
garlic cloves, sliced
- 1 tsp.
- 1/2 cup
chopped fresh parsley (can omit)
- 1 Tbsp.
- 1 Tbsp.
brown sugar or maple syrup
Heat all ingredients
except mushrooms. Bring to boil. Add mushrooms. Simmer 15
minutes. Cool for a few hours in the refrigerator. Drain
I saved the
juices that were drained from the mushrooms to use in various
(1) Added a handful of frozen raspberries to the juices in a blender and used
as salad dressing
(2) Added a couple of tablespoons to soups for additional flavoring
(3) Added ~1/3 in the food processor to 8 oz steamed tempeh, a bunch of green
onions to make a yummy sandwich/cracker spread.
(4) Still thinking of other ways to use this rich and luscious liquid!
