Vegetarian Weeknight Dinner Under 25 Minutes: Mushrooms With Corn & Potatoes In Garlicky Lemon Wine Sauce

No plans for dinner tonight? I have you covered. You need only 25 minutes to prep and cook this recipe for Mushrooms With Corn & Potatoes In Garlicky Lemon Wine Sauce. The recipe vegetarian and can be turned into a vegan dish if you use olive oil instead of butter and forego the cheese.

My Mushrooms With Corn & Potatoes In Garlicky Lemon Wine Sauce dinner was inspired and adapted from a recipe I saw on TheKitchn for Herbed Gnocchi and Mushrooms. I did not have gnocchi and did not feel like making a trip to the grocery store, so decided to use fingerling potatoes.

I also added fresh corn, used a larger amount of mushrooms and a smaller amount of butter, and changed a few steps in the cooking process. The dish was a 100 percent success, and there were no leftovers.

Mushrooms With Corn & Potatoes In Garlicky Lemon Wine Sauce
Serves 1 hungry person

6 fingerling potatoes, halved
1.5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, stems discarded, caps sliced
salt & pepper to taste
2 garlic cloves, minced
kernels from 1 ear of corn
1/2 cup Pinot Grigio
1/2 lemon, juiced
red pepper flakes to taste
3 basil leaves, chopped
1 slice Fontina cheese, chopped

1. Cook fingerling potatoes in salted water till tender.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and saute for 4 minutes.
3. Add garlic and corn and saute for another 1-2 minutes.
4. Add wine, lemon juice and red pepper flakes and simmer until the liquid has been reduced by half.
5. Add cooked potatoes to the mushroom and corn mixture and finish cooking with the last 1/2 tablespoons of butter.
6. Serve immediately garnished with basil and cheese.

I LOVED this dish. You can add pasta instead of potatoes, or serve the mushroom and corn mixture on top of a grilled pork chop. It'll also be a great base for a fritatta.

Be ready for your house to smell amazing and for all of your taste buds to be satisfied!
