Garlic Mushrooms with wine (serves 2)

Serve Garlic Mushrooms as an appetizer or in the cavity of a roasted acorn squash.


Food you'll need
1/2 cup cooking oil, extra virgin olive oil preferred
1 bulb of garlic, peeled, with each clove chopped into 2-3 pieces
1 lb. fresh whole white mushrooms (common grocery store variety)
1 cup white or red wine (I use chardonnay or cabernet)

Preparation (30-40 minutes)
On medium low heat in frying pan, sauté garlic pieces in oil for 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Rinse mushrooms; add mushrooms then wine (I prefer cabernet) to garlic/oil mix. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, until mushrooms are tender. Enjoy as an appetizer or side dish. Serve warm.
