Mushrooms anyone?

Mushrooms are among my favorites, probably because they are full of proteins (and I am a meat lover). I usually buy the white ones from Superstore, and I prepare them with tomatoes. The mushrooms can be served as a main or side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 600-700 gr. mushrooms
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 Tbsp oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • spices such as basil, oregano, thyme, parsley.
  • cooking wine (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Wash mushrooms well and cut them into smaller pieces.
  2. In a large pan (a pot also works), heat the oil and add chopped onion and garlic (leave for 2-3 minutes).
  3. Add mushrooms, stirring. Leave for some 2-3 minutes (keep on stirring, otherwise they’ll get burnt).
  4. Add diced tomatoes. Bring to boil. For enhanced taste, pour a bit of cooking wine.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and spices. It’s always best to add spices towards the end, when mushrooms are cooked.
