Manitaria Krasata – Mushrooms in Wine

Share this post with friends and family!

I made manitaria krasata – that’s mushrooms in wine in English for my Greek Cypriot Meze. Super simple to make. You can use any kind of mushrooms you like, but I used button mushrooms. You need red wine – so open a bottle of that to eat with your meal and spare some for the fungi – or buy a small bottle to cook with (it’s what I do as not fond of red wine to drink) and some coriander seeds.
