In Florida, the season for Renaissance Faires is in full swing. Trying to decide if we should go to the Tampa Bay Renaissance Faire this weekend made me think about my favorite Renaissance Faire food, garlic mushrooms. I actually haven't had them since we moved here, but they were a favorite of my whole family at both the Bristol Ren. Faire in Wisconsin and the Kansas City Ren. Faire.
2 Pounds of baby bella mushrooms ( whole or sliced)
1 Cup of vegetable or beef broth
3 Tablespoons minced garlic
3 Tablespoons of butter
1/2 teaspoon smoked salt
dash of black pepper
1/2 of finely minced parsley
Combine everything except the parsley in a large sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until the mushrooms are fully cooked, stirring often. Add parsley and cook an additional 5 minutes. Serve hot with crusty bread to soak up the broth.
