Miso Ginger Mushrooms and Spicy Ginger Peas

To make up for yesterday’s skimpy post, today is a twofer. Too bad we didn’t think of this ahead of time; it could have been Twofer Tuesday. Also, don’t worry, we will post the moussaka recipe soon!

For the mushrooms:
Adapted from Treehugger

1 lb mushrooms
1 TBL Earth Balance
2 TBL water
3 inch piece of ginger, peeled and cut into small pieces
2 cloves of garlic
3 TBL miso
2 TBL shallots, diced
1 TBL lemon juice

Preheat oven to 450 F. Blend together Earth Balance, water, lemon juice, miso, ginger, and garlic. Mix until fully combined with no big chunks of ginger or garlic. In a cake pan, toss together mushrooms, sauce mixture, and shallots. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 or so. Remove from oven when sauce is nice and thick.

For the peas:
2 cups green peas
1 TBL Earth Balance
1 tsp cayenne
1 jalapeno, diced
3 TBL fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp Tandoori powder (or garam masala)
1 TBL lemon juice

In a pan, saute Earth Balance, ginger, and jalapeno on medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add spices and lemon juice, cook another 2 minutes. Add peas, cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Deglaze pan with water if needed.

Serve with baby spinach and mung bean sprouts.
