Glazed Mushrooms
 
Ingredients
  • Mushrooms, brown or white - 20 whole
  • Oil- 1½ tbsp
  • Soy sauce, low sodium- 4 tbsp
  • Ground lemon grass- ½ tsp (optional) or use any other herbs for flavor
  • Ground pepper- ½ tsp
  • Honey- 2 tbsp
  • White sesame seeds- to sprinkle on the glazed mushrooms
Instructions
  1. I used ground lemon grass, if you don't have it go ahead and use any of your favorite dried herbs like oregano, basil etc
  2. Clean the mushrooms by wiping it with wet paper towel or kitchen towel, keep aside.
  3. Place a large non-stick cooking pan over medium heat, add oil and swirl the pan to spread oil all over it.
  4. Place mushrooms tail side up over the oil.
  5. Let cook for a few minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, ground lemon grass and ground pepper, cook till mushrooms start to get light golden spots.
  7. Pour the prepared soy mixture over the mushrooms.
  8. Cover with a lid  and cook for a few minutes, till mushroom turns tender.
  9. Open the lid, pour honey over the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes.
  10. In no time the sauce will start to bubble up.
  11. Cook till the sauce has thickened and mushrooms are glazed well.
  12. Remove the pan from the heat.
  13. Let it cool down a bit.
  14. Before serving, dip the glazed mushrooms in white sesame seeds. If you are using white mushrooms dip in black sesame seeds for a color contrast.
  15. Place the tail side up on a platter and serve. If there is any sauce left in the pan, drizzle it over the mushrooms.
  16. You could even place a tooth prick on top of the mushroom so that it would be easy for your guests to take it.
