“They’re mine! Mrs. Maggot gave them to me- A Queen among farmers’ wives!” -Frodo, Fellowship of the Ring.
1 small diced onion
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 c. small mushrooms, washed (can also use large mushrooms sliced in half or quarters)
3 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. thyme
2 c. water
2 tbsp. arrowroot
In a medium pot or a deep pan, saute the onions and garlic in the oil until the onions are soft. Add the mushrooms and thyme and cook for two more minutes. Add 1 1/2 c. water and simmer uncovered for 15 min. Mix the arrowroot with the remaining 1/2 c. of water, and add to pot. Cook until thickened, approx. one minute. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately to hungry Hobbits. Or eat them all yourself!
