Tarragon Wine-Glazed Mushrooms

Here I started with my recipe for Wine-Glazed Mushrooms but substituted tarragon for the thyme, giving the dish a sexy French accent. It's a delicious variation.


1 pound white or brown (crimini) mushrooms, or a combination
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 small shallot, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (preferably Italian flat-leaf parsley), divided
1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon or 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Clean the mushrooms. Cut larger mushrooms into quarters and cut smaller mushrooms in half.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Add the shallot, and saute for 1-2 minutes, until soft and fragrant.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet, along with salt and pepper to taste. Saute until the mushrooms are lightly golden, approximately 6-8 minutes.

Add the white wine, along with 1/2 tablespoon of the parsley, the tarragon, and additional salt and pepper as needed. Raise heat to medium-high, and saute until most of the wine has evaporated.

Reduce heat to medium. Stir in the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of parsley. Saute for another minute or two, to blend all the flavors.
