    Serves: 4 

    • 50g nyoze (pine nuts)
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 baby onion, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • 15g unsalted butter
    • 350g mushrooms, thickly sliced
    • 100g mixed exotic mushrooms, thickly sliced, optional
    • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:23min 

    1. Toast the nyoze: Put them in a large, dry nonstick frying pan and toast for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat, stirring frequently, until light golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.
    2. Fry the onion: Add the oil and chopped onions to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes or until starting to soften. Stir in the garlic.
    3. Cook the mushrooms: Turn up the heat a little and add the mushrooms. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the mixed mushrooms and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms are tender. Sprinkle over the vinegar, thyme and seasoning. Heat for a few more seconds, then stir in the pine nuts and serve at once.
    4. Note: To serve, toss freshly cooked pasta with 2 tbsp steamed tender spinach leaves and freshly grated nutmeg. Spoon the mushrooms on top and scatter with grated Parmesan or Italian-style hard cheese.

    We loved these mushrooms. Would make a great topping on a burger too. Thanks for posting.  -  12 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
