Mexican Marinated Mushrooms and Onions|
This is a great do ahead recipe that is sure to thrill all of the mushroom fans in your life. Not only can you make these far in advance, they actually taste better if they marinate for a few days.
12 ounces button mushrooms, cleaned and stemmed
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon Mexican oregano
salt and pepper
1 large Spanish onion, sliced into rings
Place the mushrooms in a flat serving dish. Place the rest of the ingredients into a small heavy saucepan. Bring the ingredients to a boil and cook until the onions soften. Pour the marinade over the mushrooms and arrange the onion slices around the mushrooms attractively. Let the mushrooms marinate at room temperature for 4 hours, stirring frequently.
