Spanish Mushrooms with Onions & Garlic

Serve these mushrooms as a tapas appetizer, a side dish or even pour them over some pasta or rice for a main course. Either way, make sure to serve these mushrooms next to a crunchy baguette to mop up all that delicious goodness.

TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: To wash the mushrooms, I always give them a quick shower for just 4 to 5 seconds. This makes it so much easier to remove the excess dirt. While not allowing the mushrooms to absorb any of the water.
