  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or stock
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 pound fresh button mushrooms, washed and quartered

Step by Step:

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-low heat; add garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Be careful to not let garlic brown. Stir in flour and red pepper flakes and cook 1 minute; add broth and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and mixture just begins to boil. Remove from heat and stir in orange juice and 2 tablespoons parsley and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet set over high heat. When oil just begins to smoke add mushrooms in a single even layer. Do not stir mushrooms until they begin to brown; gently stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes or until well browned.
  3. Add mushrooms to garlic sauce and cook 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Pour mushrooms and sauce in a serving dish and sprinkle with remaining parsley. May be served hot or at room temperature.
