SPICY MUSHROOMS AND LEEKS
3 small leeks
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
3/4 pound small mushrooms, quartered
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/8 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Split the leeks lengthwise, wash them well, drain them, and thinly
slice the white and pale green parts.
In a microwave-safe dish combine the leeks and the butter and
microwave mixture, covered with microwave-safe plastic wrap, at
high power (100%), stirring once for 5 minutes. Remove the plastic
wrap and microwave the mixture for 5 minutes more, or until the
leeks are tender.
Stir in the mushrooms, the wine, and the red pepper flakes and
microwave the mixture, covered with the plastic wrap, at high power
(100%) for 5 minutes. Stir the mixture and microwave it, uncovered,
for 8 minutes more, or until the mushrooms are tender. Stir in the
lemon juice and salt to taste. Serves 2.
