Baby Bella Medley with Mustard Sauce

This is just a really simple veg medley with a little wine and french mustard to bring it all together. 
Conclusive proof that simple can be exceptional.

1 poblano, diced
2 jalapenos, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium spanish onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced

2 1/2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbls olive oil1/4 cup pinot grigio

Saute mushrooms in oil and salt. Cook the mushrooms down until they are pretty dark. Deglaze with wine. Cook off wine for 5 minutes. 

Add onions. Cook down until onions are tender and tramslucent. 

Add peppers and garlic. Keep cooking over medium low until peppers are also tender. 
Add beans, mustard and black pepper to a large heat safe bowl. 

When mushroom mixture is done cooking add it to the bowl of beans. Stir to combine.

Garlic Galore

Do you like garlic? I mean do you really like garlic? Fresh from the head. Raw uncooked cloves minced.

In my opinion there is nothing better. Chop some fresh garlic. Butter some toast with vegan margarine. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and basil.

This is also a great way to use the ends of bread. When you use the heels of the bread toasted it tastes just like garlic bread from your favorite italian restaurant.

When prepping the garlic, really mash it hard for the utmost garlic flavor. That sticky juice that oozes out is where all the flavor and healthful properties are hiding.

If you cannot tolerate raw garlic saute in olive oil for a minute or two first.

But raw garlic will offer the best allergy help. Anytime your allergies are bothering you try eating some raw garlic as described here. It will clear up your sinuses and help to drain that phlegm.

Add raw garlic to pasta salad. When you douse it in dressing you will like the taste, but still receive the healthful benefits.
