Wednesday Dinner - Maitake, Polenta, and Green Beans... was the Day of the downtown Farmer's Market today and I bought the most beautiful Maitake Mushroom :) We all love mushrooms - and it is a quick, delicious meal. I served it along with smooth, satisfying Polenta, and garden fresh green beans. And yes, there was also Parmesiano Regiano, to add calcium in one part and the other is of course taste :) Without the cheese, this meal JS completly vegan. Alena, was very happy about the meatless meal tonight...

Here is how I made it
1. Maitake Mushroom

- Add 1/2 chopped sweet onion, sautee until soft
- Add 1-2 chopped cloves of garlic and toss in for a Minute

- When soft, remove cover and sautee until golden - Add salt and pepper to Taste

2. Green Beans
- Cut the beans diagonal
- Cook them in boiling salt water for about 2 minutes
- Heat up a splash of Olive Oil
