shroomin

Last night I made a REAL meal in my kitchen that was totally not processed, totally awesome and totally trippy. It's been a while. I missed my kitchen.

Sauteed cremini mushrooms with local fava beans, olive oil, sherry, garlic, frsehly ground black pepper and tamari.


The dinner plate - with steamed kale, millet polenta with pesto and kale (VWAV variation - I wanted to use millet but wasn't a huge fan of this variation) and a few of my first local cherry and grape tomaters. And by my, I mean from the farmer's market. Can you make out the glass in the backround? Classy, yup. Plenty of leftovers for fake omelet stuffin...

That looks so delicious. And what would we do without PBR, huh?

I'm finding myself on the shroom train this year, but have only ventured so far as portabellas. Still, for me miss "mushrooms have no flavor", that's huge. (and mushrooms totally have flavor, just not the crappy kind I ate as a kid. Funny how that works!)

I've never shared my love of mushrooms with you. We'll have to discuss. These pictures made me salivate. Or maybe that was the porn I just watched...er, um...

Sometimes the best meals are the simple ones that let the focus on the deliciousness of veggies rather than an intricate spice blend. I love your saute idea here.
