Oil and vinegar dressed salads were a key component of meals when I was growing up. For a while vinegar was blacklisted from my eating and cooking because I simply had had enough. Then I was introduced to balsamic vinegar and my life changed. Almost a year ago I had gastric sleeve surgery and overnight my palette and cravings changed. It was one of the strangest experiences. Imagine pregnancy cravings, and then imagine them never going away! The things I had liked until that point no longer appealed to me, and the things that I wouldn’t have touched pre-surgery were new cravings. Vinegar was one of the things I craved.
The good news about this recipe, you don’t have to have crazy taste buds to enjoy these mushrooms. They are loaded with flavor and would be wonderful paired with steak or chicken, or eaten alone as a side dish.
