Mushrooms: Fabulous Funghi Toast

Mushrooms: Fabulous Funghi Toast

November 02, 2021

By Esther Boateng

If you think comfort foods are stodgy, fatty, and unhealthy, think again. This mouthwatering recipe is so tasty you will probably want seconds, which is perfectly okay, because it only takes minutes to prepare.

 

Mushrooms on toast can be as simple or as sophisticated as you like. The quality of the ingredients will dictate whether you serve it as a light appetizer at a dinner party, or enjoy it as a snack. I added a light cream dressing made from crème fraiche mixed with a dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, a sprinkling of horseradish powder, and a handful of chopped dill. The additional dollop of fish roe on top of the mushrooms transformed it into a substantial snack. This is a great recipe to fall back on when you are short on time, and need to focus your efforts on tasks other than time-consuming meal prep.

 

If you want to be extra, why not go all out on the mushroom front and try something exotic like chanterelle or lion’s mane mushrooms? Chanterelles are prized for their rich flavor, distinct attractiveness, and heavenly taste. Mushrooms are quick and easy to cook, and taste delicious with little to no seasoning. I like to use a simple technique called dry sautéing. This is a great way to cook mushrooms with high moisture content. The water from the mushrooms gets released into the pan as they cook; essentially it cooks in its own juices. When the mushrooms are cooked, you can add butter or oil, lightly dust them with seasoning of your choice, and they are good to go.

Connecting With What Is Real
Connecting With What Is Real

November 23, 2021

During the holidays, most of us gather with friends and families to celebrate life. This year I would encourage everyone to take a step back, take a deep breath and connect with what is real in their lives. Not the news, not the stories, not the media, not the entertainment, but the people, animals, plants, the sun, the moon and the other tangible and precious beings in their lives.

Is your ovenproof dish buried at the back of your cupboard collecting dust? If so, dig it out, blow away the dust, and give it a good clean; you will need it for this baked fish recipe. This super versatile recipe is a complete meal, especially if you pair it with mashed potatoes; more on this later. You will also love this recipe if you like to keep washing up to a minimum. Although this recipe is made with red snapper, it works equally well with any type of white flaky fish such as cod, tilapia, bass, grouper or haddock.

Thanksgiving Celebration Cakes plus Pressure Canning Pumpkin or Winter Squash
Thanksgiving Celebration Cakes plus Pressure Canning Pumpkin or Winter Squash

What pies are on your family’s Thanksgiving table? Are they the usual apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, and pecan? Why not change it up? After all, variety is the spice of life and cake reminds us of celebrations.

This celebration cake is packed with fruits, dried vegetables, healthy fats, and spices. It is similar in texture to carrot cake yet tastes like Thanksgiving. Due to the moistness, mini cake and muffin pans are used, as a standard-sized cake would crumble too easily during the filling and frosting stage. Mini cakes and cupcakes are festively fun and small enough to sample other desserts without feeling overindulgent. (Like that's not going to happen on Thanksgiving 🦃.)
