Baby, it’s cold outside.
…So I’m not going anywhere!
A snowy day, with Hubby working from home, while I’m seven months pregnant, pretty much begs me to stay in and be cozy. Therefore, I’m sure it goes without saying (as I say it anyway…) that when it came to lunch time, running to the store wasn’t an option.
I scoured ingredients I had on hand to create something delish. The first thing that sparked my interest? A frozen bag of organic mixed mushrooms–same ones I used in my healthy chicken marsala.
Images of fresh herbs and cool goat cheese danced in my head. Oh the things I could create! If I only had fresh herbs and goat cheese…
I went for the next best option: the remaining garlic cloves from my crisper drawer, dried parsley and thyme, olive oil, a touch of butter for a change, and a little cooking wine. A splash of lemon juice and sprinkle of truffle salt brought all the flavors together just how I envisioned.
For the cheese, my go-to Laughing Cow garlic and herb option melted right into the warm, woodsy mixture, adding an element of richness to round out the creation.
Perfect as a side or appetizer course, this would be incredible served over creamy polenta or presented in little ramekins at a dinner party. But if you’re home, today, with your Hubby–right from the bowl will do.
1 (10 oz.) package frozen organic mixed mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
About 1/2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons marsala wine
1/2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried thyme
A few pinches truffle salt (kosher salt would be fine here too)
1 wedge Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese
Drizzle olive oil into a pan, over medium-high heat.
Melt in butter.
Add garlic and saute until slightly golden.
Toss in mushrooms and cook until tender.
Stream in marsala wine.
And lemon juice.
Bring to a boil and add parsley, thyme and truffle salt.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to a bowl.
Stir into hot mushroom mixture so cheese melts.
Eat and enjoy for a fancy dinner party or chilly winter snow day!
