Mushroom are such a polarizing vegetable. Folks either love ’em or hate ’em and it’s a passionate love and hate response. We have friends that are obsessed with our garlic mushroom recipe and others that shy politely away from it. It’s totally fine to be a hater cause we still love ya. We all have certain foods we dislike, but mushrooms definitely aren’t one of them. We’re always on the search for new ways to get our mushroom-hating eaters to at least try one bite. And if they like it, we’ve succeeded!

Our garlic mushroom recipe cooked in luscious garlic butter with caramelized onions is a step in the right direction. Add a splash of white wine to that and we’re happy! When the mushrooms and onions are caramelized together, the mushrooms are loaded with flavor. Cooking the mushrooms to a nice caramelization keeps them from having that “rubbery” texture and much more delicious with all the garlic and crusty tidbits from the pan. It’s not a pretty dish. The brown-on-brown isn’t always the best color combination for food. But the flavor from the wine, garlic, butter and lemon is outstanding and takes the focus back to the palate. Pair it with a steak, pork chop or chicken breast. Pour yourself a nice glass of wine. It’s a simply awesome dinner that could possibly get a mushroom hater into a lover. It’s always worth a try!
