Mushrooms with onions and garlic

 I follow Spain on a Fork in YouTube. It shows Spaniard recipes that you can make in less than 10 minutes. When I watched these Mushrooms with onions and garlic, I had to make it immediately!

I made some changes to use what I had at home.....

Mushrooms with onions and garlic

1 lbs white mushrooms (I used cremini mushrooms)

1 large  onion

5 cloves garlic

2 tomatoes

1/2 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika 

1/2 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika 

1/4 tsp saffron threads 

Olive oil

sea salt

black pepper

Wash and dry the mushrooms. Set aside

Cut the onion into thick rounds,chop the garlic, and grate the tomatoes.

In a  pan with at medium high heat, place the olive oil. Place the mushroom and cook them 3 minutes per side until they are golden brown (total 8-9 minutes). Season it with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In the same pan with some extra  olive oil, add the onions and cook them until they are golden brown. add the garlic, paprika (both), saffron and tomato. Season it with salt and pepper. Let it simmer for 3-5 minutes to reduce the tomatoes. Place the mushrooms back, and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes. Place it on a serving dish with some fresh parsley (I didn't have parsley). ENJOY!!

I served with tortilla de patatas espanola and asadillo manchego from Ana...the asadillo manchego was delicious!!
