Mushrooms in Red Wine and Miso Sauce

 

DSCN6975

Mushrooms are too often just fried and served, or buried in a pie. This recipe, although it is for a side dish,  brings them centre stage, and it is so simple to put together, taking just over 25 minutes to prepare, cook and serve.

A word of warning for those unused to using miso paste. It is a strong flavour, and it is easy to over do it. Add a bit and taste it before adding any more. It will be worth it all. You will be rewarded with a full flavoured side dish that everyone will be calling for seconds.

Serves 4. Preparation time 10 minutes. Cooking time 15 – 20 minutes or so.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves of garlic minced

1 red pepper diced

2 tablespoons red wine

16 oz button mushrooms

1/2 to 1 teaspoon miso paste

2 tablespoons chopped parsley
