This starter is delicious served as a dip with bread or vegetables. It’s substantial enough to take along on a picnic as a light entrée, along with bread, cheese, strawberries, and a bottle of spicy white wine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 12 lb mushroom, finely chopped
