Love mushrooms and want a new great salad for the Shabbos table?
I love anything and everything with mushrooms. But the real reason I make this salad is because my daughter Mindy also loves mushrooms, and what don’t we do for our kids!? Right? Right!
I’ve been making her mushroom salad forever now, but now I’m in my “twist” zone. Everything needs a twist these days – otherwise I’ll just be another Nitra cookbook. (Who remembers that? The one without pictures with a spiral binding. I think my mother used that every Pesach when she tried getting the Pesachdik lokshon right.) Here’s the version I’m making now.
- 2 leeks, finely diced
- 6 garlic cloves , finely diced
- 2 celery stalks, finely diced
- 1 plum tomato, finely diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced (optional)
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 2 packs of button mushrooms, sliced
- 5 portobello mushrooms, peeled and sliced
- Few drops soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1.5 tsp salt
- Some freshly ground black pepper
- Heat olive oil in a saute pan. Add leeks, garlic, celery, and tomato, and saute until soft.
- Add all mushrooms, soy sauce, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes. Once cool, top with fresh parsley and mix well.
- Cook for 20 minutes on low flame.
- Once cooled, chop up a full bunch of fresh parsley and mix well.
You’ll enjoy the leftovers of this one until Tuesday!
Note from BCP – you can use the jalapeño and remove the seeds. The seeds is what makes it spicier…
