Garlic Mushrooms with Spanish Padron Peppers

Did somebody say garlic mushrooms? I have to admit, I´m a bit of a mushroom-holic, and when you add garlic into the mix, well, it just takes them over-the-top. In this recipe we´re combining perfectly sauteed garlic mushrooms with Spanish padron peppers. Folk´s, this is one heck of an amazing tapas dish.

Garlic Mushrooms with Spanish Padron Peppers
Seriously, these Garlic Mushrooms with Spanish Padron Peppers are so delicious. Loaded with so many flavors, easy to make and done in under 30 minutes. This is a combination of two of the most popular ingredients in the Spanish kitchen. Serve this dish as a tapas appetizer or even as a side dish.

Garlic Mushrooms with Spanish Padron Peppers
To make this recipe I used Spanish padron peppers, if you can´t find them in your area, you can substitute them for shishito peppers. Heck, you can even use Anaheim chilis if you want to add heat to this dish. I also used Cobram Estate Sevillano Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Made with a combination of Spanish and Italian olives that are planted in California. A beautiful olive oil that has incredible aromatics and a big bold flavor.

TIPS & TRICKS to make this recipe: Make sure to use a large pan, this ensures it will hold all the ingredients in the pan. Remember to cook everything in a medium heat, that way the flavor of the olive oil is not lost. Padron peppers are not spicy, though you might find 1 or 2 spicy ones in a bag. I topped off my mushrooms & padron peppers with sweet smoked paprika, this just adds another dimension of flavors.
