Preparation of anguriñas with garlic mushrooms

  1. The most important thing to prepare the mushrooms before is the order of the vegetables you are going to use: first the onions, then the garlic. Because if not, the garlic is overdone and gives it a crisp but bitter flavor.
  2. Finely chop the onion and the minced garlic cloves. Add a good extra virgin olive oil to the casserole and fry the onions over low heat, until they are golden brown. Season and cook for about 5-6 minutes.
  3. We wash the mushrooms and dry with a cotton cloth. Laminate finely and add them to the pan with the onion, let them release all their juice and stir to mix with the onion. We raise the temperature to the maximum and pour the glass of white wine. It will begin to reduce the alcohol and the liquid of the onion after 2-3 minutes, lower it to medium temperature and cook for 10 more minutes.
  1. At the same time that our mushrooms are made with garlic, we add extra virgin olive oil to another pan and heat it up. Add the minced garlic cloves, finely chopped, to the skillet and flip when they start “dancing”. At that time, we incorporate the chilli or cayenne cut into several pieces and while the garlic is changing color, we open the package of Anguriñas and separate them a little with our fingers to notice them loose.
  2. We introduce the Anguriñas and stir everything gently to mix the flavors for about 3 minutes, add a pinch of salt and a little black pepper. We remove from the heat and wait for the mushrooms.
  3. We rectify the mushrooms with salt and black pepper.
  4. We remove everything from the heat and serve the mushrooms at the bottom of the source and the anguriñas above. It goes without saying that they are freshly made and we accompany them with a bit of toast to dip in the sauce, which will be glorious.
