East Meets Lazy
I've been living like a lazy bachelor and not cooking much these last few months but today I roused myself to cook an impromptu lunch. I've been taking advantage of the great farmers market that is held Tuesdays just a few blocks from my residence and getting some really great produce.
I simply sauteed crimini mushrooms with garlic and onion then tossed in spinach and basil at the end with a mix of soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and sugar. Surprisingly it needed more salt, because the spinach was greedy for it, and a little olive oil at the end added depth of flavor and a better mouth feel. I spooned this mix over some hot pasta and that was it. I think I'll add some red pepper flakes next time but this definitely made for a vegetarian dish you would never miss the meat in.
