REALLY good mushroom side dish

January10

I found this recipe online and tried it for Valentines Day dinner. Needless to say – I loved it. I think Zeke did too.
The leftovers were sampled by my good friend Christina two days later and she got the recipe from me immediately. Here it is…

Sliced Shallots sauteed in butter (I use Earth Balance butter or Olive Oil)

add one package of regular old mushrooms (I try to only use organic – of course) quartered and continue to saute until they look yummy.  You’ll know.  Salt away around now too.

When you think it’s done throw in some Vermouth, and cook it down a bit,  This is a good time to deg-laze the pan if you used a nonstick – I recommend NEVER using nonstick – but that’s a different post) add some lemon juice (I used one whole lemon) and some paprika (just throw some in – don’t overdo it – but don’t be afraid to season either.)

in another pan throw in some butter and chopped Hazelnuts (also called Filberts if you can’t find “Hazelnuts” at the store) and toast them until they are golden brown.

Mix everything together and serve it on a Crostini or bread.  SO good!  And pretty easy to make.

Here’s where I got the recipe from I didn’t change it really at all besides the butter…
