Hey there, Jess in the Rada Kitchen, thanks for joining me. Today we’re going to make a super-simple side dish of sautéed mushrooms and spinach that will leave you feeling nice and light and not-so-naughty this holiday season. Let’s go ahead and start prepping our veggies.
Our first step is to take our 3 garlic cloves, and with my Rada Cook’s Knife I’m going to give these guys a chop. Back through. So here I have about a pound of portabella mushrooms that I’m going to half or quarter depending on their size. The difference between portabella and white mushrooms is just their age. White mushrooms are younger and portabella have been allowed to mature.
Our extra virgin olive oil is nice and hot. To that I’m going to add our 3 garlic cloves that we chopped. And just a little pinch to your liking of red chili pepper flake. So, our garlic is turning golden brown, I’m just going to add our mushrooms. We’re going to let these cook until they caramelize and then we’ll add our spinach and artichokes.
My mushrooms are about halfway there. They are starting to turn brown and we’re going to constantly stir these guys with my Rada Non-Scratch Spoon. To our mushrooms I’m going to add some fresh spinach. And, of course, this is going to wilt down in the pan. I’m going to get as much as I can in there right now and I’ll add more in a minute.
To this I’m going to put my quartered artichoke heart. You can use frozen or canned, whichever is available. Salt and pepper. I’m going to zest my lemon. Give that a tap, with my Rada French Chef knife I’m going to halve it, pick out seeds, and give it a squeeze. I’m going to bring it all together, pull it off the stove, and finish it with our last few ingredients.
You can see that the spinach is nice and wilted and retaining that bright green color. We’ll now plate it. You could leave it just like this, but I’m going to top this off with croutons. You could also top it with some toasted bread crumbs. Get a big handful there, and right on the top for a nice, little crunch. And then a blend of Asiago, Parmesan, and Romano cheese.
And here we have our spinach and mushrooms finished and plated. Thanks for joining me today! Be sure to check us out at RadaCutlery.com and to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
