Mushroom apple celery side-dish

This side-dish goes best with meat, pork ideally, but chicken as well.

However, it tastes great on it’s own as well, with rice or potatoes.

Ingredients for 2 people:

2 big apples or 4 small apples diced

4-5 portabello mushrooms

one big onion

a few stalks of celery

olive oil

half glass red wine

a dash of sea salt

black pepper


How to make it:

In a pan, place the  finely diced onion and olive oil and heat up. Cook until the onion is tender, translucent but not brown. Add the diced apples and cook about 5 minutes. Add the sliced tomatoes and half cup water. Continue cooking on medium heat while stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are soft.Add the celery cut in chunks and the herbs and spices.

Cover and lower the heat for about 5 minutes. Check that the celery is does not become too soft.

in the meantime, in a small bowl mix one tablespoon of flour with one tablespoon of water. You’ll have a thick paste. Make sure it has no lumps. Only after you have this paste with no lumps add half cup of water to have a loose paste.

Take the pan off fire and pour in the flour liquid, and stir. Bring it back on fire, keep stirring and see it thicken. If too thick, add more water. At the end, add half cup wine, keep mixing it and cooking it for about 3 more minutes and then turn off the fire and serve it, with meat, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, or over brown rice.
