Herbed Mushroom Caviar
We found this recipe in the June 2012 Vegetarian Times.
Brennan found this recipe and wanted us to try it rightaway because a) he loves mushrooms, and b) caviar?? He even wrote "caviar?" at the bottom of the recipe. He was intrigued. Although - he must not have read the entire recipe because there is actually no traditional caviar in this recipe. It comes from the look of diced mushrooms on baguette slice.
We changed it up a bit and made this recipe as a side dish while Thomas (our non mushroom fan) was sleeping over at a friend's house.
This is a fast, easy side dish that would be great with any meat main dish.
Instead of going for a caviar look, we quartered the button mushrooms after cleaning them.
Then we sauted them in olive oil.
Once all the liquid had evaporated, we added lemon juice to deglaze the pan and let the lemon juice cook off.
Then we added minced garlic and fresh thyme.
We topped it off with parsley and served the dish warm.
