If you like rain, visit Florida in the summer. Most afternoons arrive accompanied by rain and some thunders. The excess humidity is the perfect climate to grow fungi.
Let’s talk a little about mushrooms and share some recipes.
Step 1: In a skillet, sauté the onions with olive oil for about two minutes over medium-high heat.
Step 2: Add the mushrooms and butter, sauté for a minute.
Step 3: Lower the heat a little and add the wine.
Step 4: Slowly add the heavy cream, salt, and pepper.
Step 5: Once the sauce heats up, remove it from the heat. Use a spoon and a heatproof container to remove a quarter of the liquid from the pan and mix with the flour until it is consistent. Add that mixture back to the pan and mix it in.
Step 6: Place the skillet back on the heat and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbles appear and sauce thickens up. Pour it over your favorite protein. Enjoy!
