Champignons au Vin

Mushrooms in wine, what a perfect way to elevate what is already one of natures most amazing ingredients. Naturally, wine is not the best thing to introduce if you're attempting to reverse diabetes or fatty liver, but once that's achieved, there's no reason to have a serving on your next Thanksgiving plate.

Chopping mushrooms for Miss Dot's Champignons au Vin

There's recipes for mushrooms in red wine (a perfect accompaniment for a juicy steak), but since this is a Thanksgiving side for me, I go the lighter route with the white wine version, nothing too overpowering if you make a combo bite of turkey and mushroom. Here's what you need:

Mushrooms - Or Champignons, if you will. Simple criminis will work but oyster mushrooms are a classier substitute.

Onion - For flavor and subtly contrasting texture.

Fats - Butter and coconut oil, but feel free to adjust to your dietary preferences.

Liquid - Chicken stock if you're taking the healthiest route, but for those of you in a great state of health, wine is where the flavor's at.
