Apparently the mushrooms…

Apparently the mushrooms were a big hit -- a few people have asked for the recipe. So here 'tis:

Lemon-Masala Mushrooms

(serves six)

  • 2 pounds button mushrooms, quartered
  • 6 T butter (3/4 stick)
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 t. garam masala (which you can make from scratch, or buy in the Indian grocery store, or possibly a Whole Foods/Wild Oats type of place)
  1. Saute mushrooms in butter on high until well-cooked, stirring constantly (ideally, you want them to get a little brown -- keep the heat as high as you can manage, so the mushrooms don't get soggy as they give off liquid)
  2. In the last five minutes or so, when they're close to ready, add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  3. When cooked, remove from heat and stir in garam masala until well-blended.
