Although the dish tastes great with the addition of dry white wine as the original recipe calls for, you can use marsala cooking wine instead but add a little more lemon juice to compensate for the sweetness of marsala and the mushrooms tastes great, too!

I've made clover tea and I've made lemonade, but had never put them together. Well, here ya go. Red clover grows wild in fields and meadows in Asia, Europe and North America and is part of the legume family.

I wish I'd had this when I was younger growing up in Miami. Vegan and full of flavor. It's all about the flavor! If you don't have spicy hummus, just add a little chipotle in adobe sauce or some sriracha sauce to regular hummus(and maybe a splash of lemon or lime juice to thin it out). For a change try mixing the mayo with a little Thai sweet chili sauce.
