A couple of weeks ago I was faced with a couple of aging cartons of mushrooms that I would ultimately have to throw out if I didn’t do something with them. I did a once over of what I had in the fridge and pantry to try and make something tasty.
Mushrooms, rosemary, and garlic
I look some olive oil and added some minced garlic and red pepper flakes.
Then I dumped the mushrooms in and some rosemary.
The mushrooms started cooking down and I added some salt and pepper.
While that was going on I cooked some couscous.
After a little more time this is what the mushrooms looked like.
To the couscous I added 2 eggs, cheese, and salt and pepper.
I added the mushrooms
I stirred everything together.
I then sprayed a mini muffin tin and filled it with the mixture. I thought it was a little dry but I thought that would lead to a crisp nugget. I should have added some broth at this point but I was worried that it would stay together when it cooked.This is what it looked like out of the oven. A little less brown than I wanted it.
I think they look pretty good.The flavor were good. A nice mix of meaty mushrooms, a little cheese(not enough in my opinion but it was all I had), and some rosemary.
To amp up the flavor I poured a little chicken broth on top to add some moisture, added fat free sour cream, and hot sauce.
Next time I will add more moisture and more cheese. I think I want it to be like macaroni and cheese but with couscous.
