When the market is filled and stocked with fresh mushrooms, i fill my basket with them. The first thing that I have to make is this dish. The dish is simple, fresh, fast and tasty at the same time.
200 gms – Fresh button mushrooms
1 tsp – Fresh crushed black pepper
1 tbsp – Fresh or dried rosemary
Salt to taste
2 tbsp – Olive oil
Wash or brush the mushrooms clean. If washing, pat it dry cut them into half if they are small and into four pieces if they are huge.
Heat olive oil n a shallow & wide pan. Add the crushed pepper and let it roast. This will take just a couple of seconds. Add the mushrooms and rosemary and keep the flame high.
On a high flame toss it for a couple of minutes. The mushrooms will sweat and you will see a lot of water. Keep sautéing it till all the water evaporates and the mushrooms will start turning gold and crisp. Saute it for an other minute. Sprinkle salt , mix well and garnish it with some more rosemary.
Have it as a snack or Serve it with bread, grilled tomatoes & scrambled eggs for breakfast.
*.As Julia Child says, “dont crowd the mushrooms. Otherwise they will not brown”.And a soggy mushroom dish is a disrespect to the produce.
.Keep the flame high at any point of time.
. Clean the mushrooms when they are fresh and hard. Its easier and you will do less damage to them 🙂
