Place a spoonful of kimchie on top and drizzle some soybean chilli paste or just chilli sauce of each bowl and serve. (You may add 1 raw egg in the middle while it is still steaming Hot – Optional)

Sautéed Mushrooms Recipe

It’s simple, really. You don’t need fancy varieties of mushrooms or a long list of ingredients. My secret ingredients are just dry sherry and time.

And that is time, not thyme. Although thyme is involved as well! To make these Sauteed Mushrooms you’ll need:

  • Button Mushrooms – Nothing fancy here, but these little guys get turned into super delicious.
  • Butter – For rich luxurious flavor.
  • Olive Oil – This has a higher smoking point than butter and helps to keep the butter from burning.
  • Thyme – For a fresh pop of herby essence.
  • Dry Sherry – You can use “cooking sherry” or a specific brand you love!
  • Garlic – To add some delicious garlicky flavor.
  • Salt and Pepper – To taste.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half (6 to 8 ounces)
  • Coarse salt
  • Ground pepper
  • 4 cups (about 2 1/2 ounces) baby spinach

Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken cook until browned, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add 1/4 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low cover, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate cover to keep warm.

Make mustard sauce: Add minced shallot to same pan cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in mustard and vinegar cook 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add butter swirl pan until incorporated. Stir any accumulated chicken juices into sauce.

In a medium bowl, toss spinach with half the mustard sauce. Place chicken on a serving plate drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve spinach on the side.

The recipe called for way too much salt! It wasn't bitter, just salty!

Followed the recipe exactly, using farmer's market dandelion green's. Maybe I'm merely rating the greens, because I couldn't ignore the bitterness. Taking bites of the smashed garlic helped make the medicine go down at least.

This recipe saved the day. Thank you for writing it. I weeded, saved my dandelions out from among the weeds, and decided to try sauteing them. I don't like them fresh. This was great--I had everything on hand (unlike recipes calling for bacon, lemon juice, etc.) Lucky me! Not to mention, it was scaleable (I wouldn't have opened a whole pack of bacon for a handful of greens anyway). Now I'm eating my weeds. (I didn't boil them to save dishes and nutrients, but I can stand the bitterness when I tell myself I'm being healthy.)

Delicious! A great recipe for dandelion greens. Boiling them first is essential to the success of this recipe. I added salt, garlic and a few splashes of lemon juice to the final stage of this recipe and it was simply perfect.

The wife didn't like it, but I did.

This recipe tastes just like spinach except it was a little bitter - but tasty. Not sure if it is worth the work to pick the dandelions for an everyday meal, but this would definitley wow a dinner party.

I also added crimini mushrooms, shallots, and crushed heirloom tomatoes with a little white wine to the sautee. It was delicious and not too bitter but I boiled them in lots of water first. You can boil them longer if you are afraid they are too bitter just don't boil them until they turn brown.

To the reviewer who complained that the dish was bitter: that's why you have to boil the dandelions first. Omitting this step will guarantee excessive bitterness. Also, you could use the commercially available "Italian dandelions" instead of the common lawn variety--they are much less bitter.

Very good side dish for an Italian meal featuring grilled chicken. Spiciness can be decreased for those who prefer, without harming the overall effect. Be careful not to overcook.

Very good different. We followed the recipe but, did not boil the greens first (does that make a big difference?). Dandelions are very bitter, as in very bitter. But, we added a little lemon juice towards the end and, a bit of fresh grated parmesan at the table. Likely a very good side dish for a rich entree. Would make again. We got ours at the Green Market and, since they are seasonal, they are certainly worth cooking in season. One caveat, there are many little stems and they do take time to remove both when washing and in the pan.

The most difficult part of this recipe is picking the blades of grass out the 2 lbs. of greens if harvested from your own pesticide, herbicide-free lawn. It's a tasty, simple recipe and worthy of incorporating into your celebration of "Spring is Finally Here!" recipes. (I'm certain it would be good tossed with some orechietti or other pasta, along with some toasted pine nuts and a sprinkle of reggiano).

This is how I prepare my greens but I usually use less oil. Definitely use lots of garlic and crushed red pepper. I also use escarole, chickory, arugula or broccoli rabe. Great stuff. Leftover greens are delicious in a quesadilla or on a sandwich.

I use this same recipe with spinach. It's super quick and easy. No excuse to let spinach go bad in the fridge.

Perfect way to control dandelion population for those that don't use pesticides. I start with a large finely sliced onion fried in the olive oil till almost caramellized, then add the garlic etc. Skip the pepper flakes and substitute a squeeze of fresh lemon for mediterranian variation.

Yum! This was very easy and good tasting, with no bitterness whatsoever. My dandelion -- one of those 27" tall types -- was freshly harvested and organic so that may be a factor. I replaced the red pepper flakes with cayenne, which was on hand. So good I'll try it next with arugula!

How to Sauté Spinach and Garlic

Sliver the garlic with a hand-held mandoline to get even slices every time. Or, use a very sharp knife and be as precise as you can. You can mince the garlic if you like, but the chance of it burning rises with the smaller pieces.

Choose a large non-stick skillet or dutch oven, and warm your oil along with the garlic slivers. Be sure to watch the garlic closely as it cooks as it go from bronzed to brown and bitter in a heartbeat. The garlic flavors the oil as it cooks. Quickly fish out the garlic with a mesh skimmer like this one and reserve the oil for your spinach.

Heaping piles of spinach cook down quickly as the spinach hits the heat. I use my trusty tongs to toss the spinach as it cooks. Season the spinach now with the kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. The salt helps draw out the moisture and makes the cooking process quicker.

Once the leaves just begin to wilt overall, it’s time to remove the pot from the heat. The leaves will continue to cook from the residual heat.

Toss the garlic slices back into the pan and add a squeeze of lemon or a drizzle of balsamic, champagne vinegar, or rice wine vinegar to add a spark of freshness if desired. If you can’t eat your spinach without a pat of butter, feel free to add it to the hot spinach too.

One of Sevillas BEST Dishes | Orange Cod with Sautéed Spinach

Sevilla, Spain. What many consider, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It´s full of art & culture, amazing architecture and offers some of the most popular foods in Spain. In this recipe, I will show you how to make one of Sevillas best dishes, Orange Cod with Sautéed Spinach.

This dish is known in Sevilla as ¨Bacalao a la Naranja con Espinacas¨. It has so many great flavors, it´s sweet & savory, it´s absolutely delicious. But the best part? It´s easy to make and done in about 30 minutes.

To make this dish use a GREAT Olive Oil. This is the base fat of the dish and what really brings it all together. I used one from Apollo Olive Oil called Millers Favorite. Truly, one of the BEST Extra Virgin Olive Oils money can buy.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used frozen cod that I thawed out. The secret? Make sure to pat it completely dry with paper towels. That way when you cook the cod, its got a great texture and it absorbs all the flavors. I also used fresh bagged spinach. But you can use frozen spinach. Just make sure to thaw it out and fully drain any excess liquid.
