My husband and I are participating in our first farm share which means a slew of new vegetables each week – Yay! With so many veggies, I need to a) use them and b) use them creatively. Now, I’ve have some wins (see below) but I’ve also had some misses, like when I roasted radishes with sugar and cinnamon. Seemed like a good idea at the time but they were too intensely sweet!
For this quick and ultra easy dinner, roasted veggies speaks to me like no other! There’s something about the caramelization of the onion tips that creates a blissful happy dance in my mouth!
I love cooking with onions! They are healthy, great in salads, roasted or sautéed and super easy to regrow! (I will be attempting this very soon!) In the words of Julia Child: “I can’t imagine a world without onions!”
Earlier this year, I posted my Smokehouse Turkey Burger recipe but didn’t get a chance to show off the finished product, which includes…..yep, onions! Just look at those savory morsels!!
My great aunt was a great cook. I remember her coming to our house, when my sister and I were young, and cooking all her favorite Italian dishes.
One of her specialties was stuffed mushrooms. Now, I’m pretty sure I never ate them because I have only recently grown a like/tolerance for them. I’d say I’m still in the basic liking stages, only eating them in certain dishes and when I feel like it.
The memory of Aunt Kay, as we called her, making these stuffed mushrooms, conjures feelings of that simple time when we were little kids. Watching her prepare these (all those years ago), I always thought they were time consuming, but I was delightfully wrong. These deliciously, semi-spicy white cap Stuffed Mushrooms are only five (5) ingredients. Six, if you count the oven! I am positive that Aunt Kay would approve!
