I can’t believe it’s the 21st of July already! Once again, summer is flying by, and It’s also time for Recipe Redux, this month it’s a Spirited Recipe Redux.
“From plain Jane vanilla extract to fancy-pants elderflower liqueur, we like to keep a little liquor in the kitchen. Show us how you like to cook, bake or mix-it-up with spirits, extracts and other alcohols. A splash of vodka makes summer sauces shine – and liqueurs brighten desserts: What’s your healthy recipe with spirit? “
This was an easy one. I love the intense flavor that alcohol brings to slow cooked foods as it evaporates. Even though my spirit of choice when it comes to cooking is wine, I decided to use another spirit ~ Tequila. Several years ago I had Drunkin Mushrooms in a Mexican Restaurant, and this challenge inspired me to create my own spin on them.
You can use any type of mushroom, but I prefer the meatiness of the portobellos. They are cooked slow and they soak up the intensified flavor of the Tequila.
Fresh Cilantro and a dash of ground cumin at the end, adds a touch of sweetness.
Enjoy these mushrooms as a side dish, over field greens, or just by themselves.
