Mushroom ‘Steaks’

Jules Clancy’s cookbook has been saving my life this week. I love that it really is just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of time invested in dinner prep, and we end up having something delicious on the table.

The tagline of her book (Delicious, Healthy Recipes for Tired and Hungry Cooks) has never been more appropriate for us than it has been this week.

This dish delivered on flavor BIG TIME. I know we just had some outstanding steaks, but this meat-free option was fabulous! The sauce had tons of flavor that went beautifully with the seared mushrooms and greens.

The house got pretty smoky while these were frying, but it was totally worth it. This was a delicious and filling meal. Jules has a lot of fun options in her book for variations on this dish as well. I highly, HIGHLY recommend picking up a copy of your own!

    Okay, I have to check out that book. Usually I have time to prepare a meal, but some days . . . well, that subtitle about tired and hungry exactly describes me. 🙂
