I have been neglecting the side dishes on this blog, perhaps because they just seem less glamorous than desserts and dinners. However, many times the side dish can enhance the overall feel of a meal. These mushrooms are savory and meaty and pair well with mashed potatoes. Subtle enough to not over power the main event, yet delicious enough that people will definitely go back for seconds.
Balsamic Mushrooms (serves 6 as a side)
3 cups sliced button mushrooms
salt and pepper
Heat olive in a pan over medium/ high heat. Add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until tender. The mushrooms will turn a nice medium/dark brown. Add in the vinegar and cook for a couple more minutes until it coats all the mushrooms. The mushrooms should have a nice snap and crispiness on the edges.
