For my Passover meal I decided to totally throw together a vegetable dish that I made up. I have talked about this before but I love to let my mind wander and see what recipe ideas it can come up with. I think of ideas all the time but when I need a recipe to round out a meal, I open my consciousness to what comes in. For those of you that meditate, this is a meditation concept – a Zen approach.
In this vision, I came up with the idea of merging 3 vegetables all cooked in different ways. The broccoli was broiled to create a sort of char on it. The onions were caramelized and the mushrooms were prepared in a reduction of Marsala and red wine.
Tri-vegetables – Broccoli, Mushroom & Onions:
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 large onion
- 2 packages of fresh mushrooms (earthier the better)
- 1 – 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp Kosher salt
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1/4 cup Marsala
- 1/2 cup of red wine
Place the broccoli on a baking rack and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Put in an oven on a rack set 3/4 to the top of your oven and broil on low for 6 – 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a saute pan with the oil and cook your onions on a very low heat until they turn a nice caramel color. About 1/2 way through the process.
In a separate saute pan, pour in the Marsala wine and reduce by 1/2.
Add in the red wine and repeat.
Then, add the mushrooms and cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated.
Combine all 3 vegetables and heat in a 250 degree oven to make sure they are served warm. Enjoy!
