A personal kitchen diary. I try new recipes and make notes on what works and what doesn't. Sometimes I can things, and sometimes I dry herbs. This is the story of my kitchen.

Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges with Yogurt Sauce, Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges with Yogurt Sauce, Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

As so often happens, I was seduced by produce at the grocery store.  This time, it was pomegranates that were on sale, and I bought 2. In a week we are headed out for 2 weeks in Costa Rica, so it is the standard rush […]

Baked White Fish in a Sour Cream/Parmesan Sauce

Baked White Fish in a Sour Cream/Parmesan Sauce

The original recipe for this used halibut, but I had cod.  And the recipe calls for Parmesan cheese but I had a wedge of another hard cheese that is similar that I needed to use up.  In other words, the recipe really became more of […]

Roasted Mushrooms in a Garlic, Thyme, Brown Butter Sauce

Roasted Mushrooms in a Garlic, Thyme, Brown Butter Sauce

Tonight I tried a recipe that had popped up in my Pinterest feed from closetcooking.com.

You can find the recipe here.

This definitely moved to my Pinterest board for recipes that I have tried and are worth keeping.

I didn’t have quite enough mushrooms, so ended up with too much sauce, and I didn’t share later (because there weren’t enough–I ate them all).

The other mistake I made, other than not enough mushrooms, was thinking that the mushrooms were too big and cutting them into chunks.  I really should have left them whole.  I forgot how much they shrink up after roasting.

While they were roasting, I got together the butter, thyme, garlic, and lemon juice for the sauce.

The recipe doesn’t really say how long it takes to brown the butter, and I had not done it in so long I couldn’t remember.  A quick google told me 5-8 minutes over medium heat.

Then I added the thyme, garlic and lemon juice.

After tossing the roasted mushrooms with the sauce, I put into a serving bowl.  They look so tiny and sad.

 

So, to recap, great recipe.  Next time I will:

1. Use the full pound of mushrooms

2. Leave the button mushrooms whole

3. Brown the butter over medium heat 5-8 minutes
