Meatless Monday: Red Wine Marinated Mushrooms

We have a few bottles of red wine hanging around the apartment, and it turns out that when you cook mushrooms in red wine, they come out delicious.
  • Mushrooms - we didn't use enough, because Mr. Barefoot always forgets how much they cook down. I would use about 20 next time, or really, the entire box.
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine (or just pour until they are covered. You can also add some water.)
  1. Slice and prep mushrooms.
  2. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat.
  3. Saute mushrooms in butter until soft and cooked. Add garlic and cook for until garlic is slightly cooked.
  4. Pour in red wine. Allow to come to a boil, then simmer.
  5. Simmer until wine becomes a thick sauce (5-10 minutes).
We had ours over salmon, but they would be fantastic with just about anything, or just served over cous cous or rice. Or risotto. Man that would be amazing.
