I’m the only mushroom eater in the house. So when I made these skewers, I ate one serving as a side and had a whole bunch of leftovers laying around in the fridge for an unknown, unplanned use. The next day, I tried them in a sandwich. Two days later, in another one. They were a delicious change from my usual lunches and a great way to cut back on meat a bit.
A quick whisking of harissa, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and oregano yielded a very flavorful marinade for these baby bellas. Roast or grill them. Serve them warm or at room temperature.
On a newsy note, I’m knee-deep in redesigning the blog with the help of a very talented designer, as well as jotting down ideas of what to bake for Dinners & Dreams’ upcoming second birthday.
Both the new look and the celebratory cake are coming soon!
