I made this delicious dinner for two the other night and it was wonderful. It’s elegant and delicious – but it’s quite simple to make and takes under 30 minutes. I was looking for something creamy and more of a comfort food, but it had to have lots of great flavor and fill me up. This really did the trick!
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz whole white mushrooms
1/2 cup white onion, diced
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
4 tablespoons cream cheese
2-3 tablespoons milk (depending on how thick you want the sauce)
3 cups cooked quinoa, cooked to package directions – or grain of choice
Start off with cooking the quinoa or other grain, as it’ll take longer than the mushrooms.
In a large skillet over medium heat place the mushrooms, onions, olive oil, and garlic. Cook until the mushrooms and onions are tender – about 5-7 minutes. Add the cream cheese, salt, pepper, and basil and allow the cream cheese to fully melt down – then add milk until it’s at your desired creaminess. Pour over top quinoa or other grain and serve hot! Enjoy!
