That’s my name because I really couldn’t think what to name this absolutely wonderful mushroom creation that I’ve come up with.

Like I mentioned, I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms, but reading alot about them lately, I realized they’re something that really should be added to by shopping basket at least once a fortnight. The next challenge was finding a recipe, besides Cream of Mushroom soup and Deep Fried Garlic Mushrooms, that I could make. I did a lot of searching, magazines I have piled up as well as off the net. Nice lot but…
So then I decided to just follow my instinct. So it was the mushrooms and the happy chance of seeing a left over bottle of wine at the back of the shelf. And I got really lucky.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams button mushrooms, soaked, scrubbed thoroughly and sliced
  • 1 cup sweet red wine
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 finely chopped green chili
  • Pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil to cook
  • 4 slices Bread

Method

Step 1

In a flat skillet gently fry the onions in olive oil.

Step 2

As the soften, crush the garlic and add. The delicious aroma of frying garlic will immediately fill your kitchen.

Step 3

Add the chili. Cook, stirring occasionally till the onions turn golden. Add the mushrooms and salt.

Step 4

Let cook, stirring occasionally. Mushrooms give out a lot of liquid, so don't add any. The aim here is to get the mushrooms as dry as possible.

Step 5

As the begin to get dry, add the wine, stir thoroughly and then allow to cook again, absorbing all the wine till almost dry. Take off the heat.

Step 6

Pop the bread in the toaster. Toast till golden brown. Add a sliver of butter if you want, but it's unnecessary. Slice each into 2 triangles.

Step 7

Spoon on the mushrooms, drizzle with pepper. Serve!


Add lettuce leaves or tomato slices if you like. Drunkenly divine. 🙂
