Non Chicken Marsala

So today Ash Wednesday, and that means no meat for lots of you. When I asked Nick what he wanted for dinner he said he would rather not eat meat today, and I wasn’t sure what I had for hearty vegetables in the fridge but after looking this is what I came up with.

1lb of sliced mushrooms
1/2 c diced onion
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 pinch red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
1 tbsp flour
1/2 can vegetable broth or stock
1 cup milk
2 oz marsala
1 oz parmesan cheese
1 tbsp oil

heat the oil in a pan
add in onion and mushrooms
let cook through until liquid has rendered
add in garlic and seasonings
Add in the flour and let cook for a minute or two
add in the marsala to deglaze the pan
let cook for a minute or two
add in the broth and let cook down for a minute or two
and lastly add in the milk and let cook down until thickened
stir in the parmesan cheese

Serve over mashed potatoes or pasta
garnish with chopped parsley or chives

Remember you can always add chicken to this and make it normal chicken marsala! A delicious option for days of the week that aren’t ash wednesday =]

Happy eating!
