Roasted Mushrooms with Toasted Buttery Hazelnuts

Recipe courtesy Alex Guarnaschelli

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 pound white button mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
  • Vermouth
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnuts, slightly crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 12 slices French bread, toasted

Directions

Heat a skillet large enough to hold the mushrooms in a single layer over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, which should, ideally, melt quickly and turn a light brown color. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and give them a quick stir. Add mushrooms, 1 more tablespoon of butter and season with a bit more salt. Cook for about 4 minutes until mushrooms begin to turn golden brown and release some of their water. To avoid a possible flame up, move pan away from the stove and carefully add the vermouth. Return pan to stove and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes to reduce the vermouth.

While mushrooms are cooking melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet over low heat. Add the hazelnuts and let them “simmer” in the butter over low heat until they turn light brown, about 4 minutes.

Once the vermouth has reduced and been absorbed by the mushrooms sprinkle in the paprika (use a mesh strainer to evenly distribute the paprika over all the mushrooms). Add the lemon juice and hazelnuts and give it a stir. Remove from heat and let cool for 2 minutes.

Top each slice of toasted French bread with about 2 tablespoons of the mushroom mixture, place on platter and serve.

Sote de ciuperci

Ingrediente:

  • 1 kg ciuperci proaspete (champignon)
  • 5 linguri ulei
  • 2 cepe potrivite
  • 14 catei de usturoi
  • sare
  • piper

Mod de preparare:

Se spala ciupercile si se taie feli sibtiri (Am invatat de la maestrul Varlan sa nu le mai curat).

Intr-o tigaie se pune uleiul, se adauga ceapa data prin razatoarea mica si usturoiul pisat si se lasa la foc potrivit pana ceapa si usturoiul devin sticloase, dupa care se adauga ciupercile. Se lasa la foc potrivit pana incep sa se inmoaie si sa lase apa, se mai adauga pe parcurs circa 400 ml apa. Se pune sare si piper dupa gust. Dupa parerea mea sunt foarte bune daca sunt putin mai condimentate. Cand devin foarte moi si nu mai este apa in cratita sunt gata.

Se pot servi cu orez fiert si muraturi.

Ciorba de ciuperci

Ingrediente:

  • 1 borcan ciuperci
  • 1 morcov mic
  • 1 ceapa
  • 7 catei de usturoi
  • 2 linguri ulei
  • 1 cartof
  • sare
  • piper
  • lamaie
  • aproximativ 2 litri apa

Mod de preparare:

Se curata ceapa, usturoiul si morcovul. Ceapa si morcovul se dau prin razatoarea mica, usturoiul se zdrobeste cu presa. Se pun toate in cratita, se adauga si uleiul, se calesc pana incepe sa se vada o colorare portocalie a uleiului de la morcov, dupa care se adauga ciupercile si piperul (ciupercile vor fi scurse de apa din borcan si se vor trece printr-un jet de apa rece). Se vor lasa toate la foc mic pana incepe sa sfaraie, apoi se adauga apa si ce fierg circa 15 minute, pana cand ciupercile sunt pe jumatate fierte, dupa care se adauga cartoful curatat si taiat cubulete de marimi potrivite. Se adauga sare dupa gust. Cand cartoful este fiert ciorbita este gata.

Se adauga deasupra verdeata si se acreste cu lamaie. Se poate servi cu smantana, iar daca dorim sa fie de post o servim doar cu lamaie.

Pofta buna.
