let's play hide-and-seek!

Caramelized Onion & Mushroom Bruschetta

Balsamic Vinegar, my love.
I always have my salad or sides with extra balsamico dressing.

Some good health facts from consuming balsamic vinegar: Antioxidant + Reducing Heart Attack Risk + Pain Reliever +Digestion Promotion + Weight Loss (not too sure about this) + Diabetes Control + Bone Health …  etc.. check here for more! However, knowing the good facts of it, i love it more! The ingredients list for today would be some big yellow onion, brown mushrooms and loaf bread that i bought from butter + bean cafe, they had a range of artisan bread like brioche, farm house, white loaf, wheat bread loaf… etc.. i would definitely recommend their loaf bread to take-away, the wheat bread was pretty good for my bruschetta, the loaf are crisp outside and with a soft inside.

Let’s start to caramelize some onions…

shroom2Caramelized Onion & Mushroom Bruschetta
(for per person serving)

2 slices of wheat bread
handful of brown mushrooms (cut to chunk)
1 yellow onion (chopped)
1 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 tsp of whole grain mustard
sprinkles of salt
sprinkles of black pepper
sprinkles of sugar (just a little)
1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp butter
some fresh rosemary (optional)
olive oil


Lightly coat bread slices with olive oil, and broil until golden brown in an oven. Let it set in the oven to prevent it to get cool off.

Heat a large pan over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic till brown and soft (not burn), add in chopped mushroom and rosemary (without stem) sauteed it in a while until all the mushroom juice vaporized or till its deep brown color, sprinkle salt, sugar and black pepper to taste.

When the mushroom are done, turn of the heat, stir in balsamic vinegar and butter, give it a well mixed.

To build the bruschetta, spread a layer of butter on toasted bread and top with the mushroom and onion mixture. Serve it right when its warm. You can always have your bruschetta with other toppings like sundried tomatoes with goat cheese, curry eggplant with coriander…

Enjoy the recipe! cook & smile.
