Cremini Mushrooms & Potatoes Recipe

If you have lunch or dinner with friends and you have to prepare a dish to complete the menu and share it among all of you, I'll have to warn you that if you prepare these potatoes and mushrooms and serve them simply as a starter, they will fly.  

Today's recipe is for the lazy, for those who still don't dare to try more complicated recipes, or simply for those who don't feel like cooking. This potato and mushroom side dish can be used to accompany any fish or meat if you eat it.  If you follow a vegetarian diet, prepare a veggie burger and you will have a complete dish.

Another option is to complete this dish with egg. You can use the base ingredients to prepare a potato and mushroom scramble. Or simply prepare a grilled egg or a poached egg, served on top of this vegetarian meal. 

Prep Time: 10-15 mins
Cook Time: 30-40 mins
Serves: 4

2 tbsp olive oil
large onion sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
225g sliced cremini mushrooms
¼ cup white wine 
4 medium potatoes, diced
¾ cup full-fat coconut milk
½ tsp sea salt, to taste
¼ tsp pepper to taste
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley  

1In a large, non-stick griddle, sauté the onions in olive oil over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes and then add the mushrooms and garlic. Keep cooking for about 10 minutes.

2Pour in the wine and cook just until it evaporates.

3Add the potatoes, salt, and pepper to the mushrooms and keep frying, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.

4Add coconut milk and reduce the heat to low. Cover with a tight lid and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through.

5Let it rest for 5 more minutes, garnish with parsley, and serve.

NoteButton mushrooms or portobello mushrooms are a good alternative for cremini mushrooms.
