Magic Mushrooms

Story time!

One day back in high school, my art teacher (we’ll call her Mrs. Smith) decided to show off a mushroom-shaped piece of pottery constructed by a student.

“Look, class,” she said.  “Isn’t this gorgeous?”

Her question was met with snickers. Confused, she asked, “You don’t think it’s beautiful?  Just look at the skill; look at the attention to detail.”

More snickers. Finally, someone got up the nerve to tell her:

“Mrs. Smith, it’s a bong!”

Magic Mushrooms

(serves 2)

  • 2 packages sliced mushrooms (350 grams)
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 2 tbsp vinegar (I like red wine vinegar)
  • sautéing liquid of choice (oil, broth, or water)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • pepper, if desired (I dislike pepper, so I leave it out)
  • optional: beans, tofu, or any other add-ins you wish

Combine all ingredients except vinegar.  Sauté over medium heat, stirring very occasionally.  The mushrooms will get very liquidy, then they’ll eventually dry out.  When they dry out, turn off the heat. Add the vinegar and stir. Eat cold or hot.

    Delicious!!! I made these last night and I was a little hesitant at first because they weren’t drying out. I kept on cooking, though, and sure enough they dried out. The red wine vinegar gives the mushrooms the perfect tanginess. Definitely a great recipe. I served it over bow tie pasta and my friend and I loved it!

    Thank you so much for sharing! This is an amazing recipe! Kids will definitely enjoy this and it is so much healthier. This is another way for me to persuade them to eat the healthy type of foods!

    I was so excited when I saw the title of this recipe. Then I saw the word garlic… Blech.
    Oh well. I saw something about cookie dough, I’ll go look at that. 🙂

    I guess a bong has something to do with drugs… don’t know what it’s for, or what it would look like. I wouldn’t have known what it was either. I’d probably have been the only kid not laughing and wondering what was going on. Lol.
