Mushrooms à la grecque

Mushrooms  à la grecque may sound French and complicated but is in fact a super easy, quick and delicious way to cook mushrooms.

The adults in our household really enjoy this dish and we whip it up regularly. Have as a vegan treat, lunch, meze, with pasta, cous cous or rice. It’s always delicious.

We usually use white agaricus mushrooms but that’s simply because there are always some of those in our fridge. You can use whatever mushrooms you like or have available. If you go for button mushrooms you are making your life even easier as you don’t have to cut them up!

We almost always add a little bit of wine at the end of our cooking. It’s usually red but we are not too fussed. Whatever is available. We keep any half-empty bottles of wine right next to our stove to use for cooking.

But wine is definitely optional, these taste delicious in any case.
