FRESH MUSHROOM SAUTE TOPPER
Fresh mushroom, green pepper and sweet onion sauteed in extra virgin olive oil. Seasoned with garlic and smoked paprika! Simple yet delicious!
Makes enough for 8-12 toppers or serves 4 – 6 as a side dish
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 c. diced sweet onion, 3/8 inch squares
1 c. diced green pepper, 3/8 inch cubes
8 oz. pkg. white button mushrooms, washed, stems trimmed and sliced
1 t. pink Himalayan salt
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. smoked paprika
fresh grind black pepper
In large skillet, over medium heat, melt oil.
Add onion and green pepper then saute while you’re slicing the mushrooms.
Add the mushroom along with salt, garlic, smoked paprika and fresh grind black pepper. Saute till tender, keeping some of the liquid extracted from the mushrooms during the cooking process, so the topping won’t be too dry. Remove from heat.
Serving Suggestions: Serve over grits, mashed potatoes, baked beans, rice, home fries, scrambled tofu, over plant meats, on sandwiches and subs, as a pizza topping, or as a side dish with just about anything. Use on tacos, in tortilla wraps and on and on.
