Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Add some finely chopped garlic to the pan with the onions and let it caramelize. It will add some depth of flavor.
  • The mushrooms should be washed well – to do so, clean them with a damp cloth. Do not use running water to clean them and do not submerge them in water – they will simply absorb the water and dilute the dish.
