Chanterelle Mushroom Recipes

Shari’s Mushroom Quiche
by Rodrigo Donadi
# 1

1 (8 ounce) Crescent Roll Refrigerated Dough Roll
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 shallots, sliced
1 lbs. of Chanterelle mushrooms, roughly sliced
Salt and (I prefer) freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of heavy cream
3 large eggs
Pinch of (I prefer) fresh grated nutmeg
1 cup of Gruyere Cheese, grated
1/2 cup of Swiss Cheese, grated
(or you can use all Swiss Cheese)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9-inch pie baking dish, coat with non-stick spray or butter and arrange crescent roll triangles in a circle, with the tip part hung over the rim of the pie plate about 1-1/2 to 2 inches and press the dough onto the bottom and sides of the pie backing dish to fill in any gaps. (After you pour the quiche mixture into the non-prebacked dough, you will be folding the points of the dough that are hanging over the edge back in over the edge of the filling, trying to make a nice edge.)

Over moderate heat, using the olive oil in a skillet (preferably non-stick), add the shallots and sauté about 1 minute. Add the Chanterelle mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. This will help the mushrooms release their moisture as you want to render that moisture out. Remember to stir frequently. Took about 8 minutes or so to evaporate the moisture. Your mushrooms should be moderately browned. Taste test your mushrooms so they do not get tough or rubbery.

While your sautéing, in a separate bowl, gently whisk only your eggs to a frothy mix. Then, combine all ingredients and stir everything thoroughly. Pour mixture into pie baking dish. Back at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, until center of quiche feels firm to the touch. Cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

1lb of Chanterelles
2 Large Tomatoes
1/4 Cup of Green Olives W/Pimento
1/2 Cup Sharp White Cheddar Cheese
2T Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat oven to 350 degrees

Add to onions and continue to sauté until Chanterelles are tender. Beat 6 eggs and add salt and pepper to the eggs. Add beaten eggs to the skillet covering the onions and Chanterelles. Add diced tomatoes and sliced olives with pimento into the eggs. Once the eggs begin to come together and pull from the sides, but are still runny in the middle, remove from the stove. Cover with shredded Cheddar and place into your heated oven. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown and the eggs are completely cooked and the cheese is melted. Perfect for a hearty brunch dish or even dinner.

Chanterelle Slow-Scrambled Eggs with Truffle Oil
by Claire
# 7

Chanterelles are so wonderfully earthy, yet delicate, that they are best showcased on their own, matched with their favorite complements of butter, white wine, and thyme. Slow-cooked scrambled eggs make a rich, silky base for the mushrooms, and a sprinkle of white truffle oil make the dish appropriate for a either a weekend brunch with the paper or an elegant supper.

Makes 2 servings
½ lb. chanterelle mushrooms, whole, cleaned
½ c. white wine
½ c. low-sodium chicken broth
4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed
1 shallot, minced
6 eggs
¼ c. heavy cream
4 tbsp. good-quality butter, divided
salt and white pepper, to taste
optional: white truffle oil, for garnish

1. Prepare the mushrooms: Melt 2 tbsp. butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot to melted butter, sauté until shallot is tender. Add mushrooms to pan, stir to coat in butter. Add white wine and shallots, simmer until liquid has almost entirely reduced and mushrooms are tender. Add the thyme leaves and sauté another minute or two. Season with salt and white pepper. Remove from heat, set aside.

2. Prepare the eggs: Using a double boiler, bring water in the bottom pot to a simmer. Crack the eggs into the top pot (off the heat) and whisk. Season generously with salt and white pepper. Place the top pot with the eggs onto the bottom pot of simmering water. Stir eggs constantly with a wooden spoon until small curds begin to appear, about 5-10 minutes. When curds appear, remove top pot from heat. Whisk the eggs until they are thick, then whisk in the remaining 2 tbsp. of butter, which should make the eggs smooth. Add cream 1 tbsp. at a time, whisking constantly. Eggs should be very thick and creamy; if they are runny, return the top pot to heat briefly and stir with wooden spoon until eggs have thickened.

3. Serve: Divide the eggs between two plates. Divide chanterelles between the two, covering the eggs and pouring any excess juice/sauce over the top. Sprinkle with white truffle oil, if desired. Serve with crusty white bread and a piping hot latte for breakfast, or with an arugula salad and a glass of white wine for a simple dinner.




Swedish Chanterelles
by Sandra L. Venegoni
# 8

In Sweden they are "Kantareller" and served on lightly toasted white bread.

Clean mushrooms and trim off ends. Saute the mushrooms in butter for about 10 minutes. Lightly salt. Served on lightly buttered and toasted white bread. Amen! That’s all there is and they are delicious. I just returned from Sweden and had about 5 of these during our month long trip.




Chanterelle and Scallop Tortillas
by Eugenia Bone
# 9

We like to hand these tortillas around in a bit of wax or deli paper. Great with a cold Fat Tire.

Serves 4 as an appetizer (2 per person)

6 diver scallops
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons minced white onion
Juice from ½ lemon
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ lb chanterelles, split (large mushrooms should be quartered)
8 mini white corn tortillas (about 3 inches in diameter
4 tablespoons corn oil
Truffle oil to taste

Place 1 tablespoon of salt in a bowl with 6 cups of water. Add the scallops and let them sit in the fridge overnight. Drain the scallops. Place the scallops in a bowl of cold water and let rest for about 2 hours. Drain the scallops again and place in a food grade baggie with the lemon juice, tarragon, onion, olive oil and black pepper to taste. Refrigerate for a few hours.

Heat two tablespoons of butter in a small non-stick pan. Add the chanterelles and cook until they release their liquor, about 5 minutes. Continue cooking until the liquor has almost evaporated – a few tablespoons in the bottom of the pan is good ­ about 3 minutes. Add salt to taste.

Remove the scallops from the marinade and chop into bite-sized pieces. Heat the remaining tablespoon of butter in a small non-stick skillet. Add the scallops and saute until they are opaque, about 4 minutes. Check the seasoning.

Heat the corn oil in a medium-sized non-stick skillet and, using tongs, add the tortillas, frying gently until they are pliable ­ about 30 seconds. Pat dry with paper towels.

To serve, place a tablespoon of scallops and a tablespoon of chanterelles in the middle of each tortilla. Drizzle a bit of truffle oil on top, and fold the tortilla in half. Serve immediately.

Chanterelle Mushroom and Goat Cheese Bruschette
by Kevin
# 12

All amounts are approximate and can be adjusted based on the portion size desired, type of bread available, your fondness for cheese etc.

Half a pound of chanterelle mushrooms
About a cup of goat cheese (or similar creamy, flavorful cheese), crumbled
Rosemary
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Baguette
A few cloves of garlic

1. Slice the baguette on the bias (i/e with your knife at a 45 degree angle to the long axis of the bread) and about ½ inch thick. Toast the pieces until lightly browned.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine chanterelles, goat cheese, and rosemary. Add enough oil to coat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Take a toast round and rub one side with a peeled clove of garlic and place on a baking sheet, garlic side up. Repeat with remaining baguette pieces.
4. On each garlicked baguette piece, spoon some of the mushroom mixture.
5. Pop the baking sheet under the broiler (or just in the toaster oven) for five to ten minutes depending on how powerful your broiler/toaster is. The only thing to be careful of is scorching the edges of the toast.
6. Stuff your face or the faces of your friends.

If you really want to go wild, before you put the bruschette in the toaster, drizzle them with white truffle oil. Truffle oil can run on the expensive side, but you won’t believe how well it goes with mushrooms.

Chanterelle Mushroom Hash on Grilled Polenta Triangles
by Wine Imbiber
# 14

For the grilled polenta triangles:
2 cups whole milk
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh sage, minced (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
4-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil (plus more for brushing later)
2 cups polenta or coarsely ground yellow cornmeal

Line a 10 x 15 inch jelly-roll or other similar-sized pan with plastic wrap. Stir together all of the ingredients (except the polenta) in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and gradually sprinkle in the cornmeal, stirring constantly with a wire whisk or spoon, to prevent lumps from forming.

Cook 5 to 8 minutes until mixture thickens and all of the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the mixture into the plastic-lined pan with a rubber spatula. Even out the polenta by repeatedly dipping the spatula in very hot water and spreading it to the edges of the pan. Cover the pan with a clean dish towel and set aside to set and firm for 1 hour (or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator).

When ready to serve, remove the polenta from the pan. Cut it lengthwise into thirds, then crosswise into 4 square pieces. Cut each square into 4 triangles, creating 48 triangles total. Brush the tops of the triangles with olive oil. Preheat a grill pan to high heat. (I like to use a pan with ridges­it produces appetizing grill marks on the polenta triangles). Brush the pan with olive oil. Grill the triangles (bottom-sides first) until nicely browned (or grill marks form). Then flip them and do the same to the other sides. (Alternatively, you could place all of the triangles on a cookie sheet and broil them in the oven). Transfer the grilled triangles to a cookie sheet and set aside.

For the chanterelle mushroom hash:
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
1/4 cup white onion, minced
1/4 cup shallots, minced
6 cups fresh chanterelle mushrooms, chopped
1/4 cup wine (Marsala, Madeira, sherry or any white will work well)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup sour cream or heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon fresh herbs, minced (rosemary and tarragon work well)
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon peel, grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the butter or oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and shallots and sauté a minute or two. Add the chanterelles and wine and continue sautéeing until the mushrooms begin to brown (about 5 minutes). Stir in the garlic and sauté another minute. Turn the heat to low and stir in the remaining ingredients. Keep warm until assembly.

For assembling and garnishing:
1/2 to 1 pound mild white cheese, shredded (Fontina and Havarti work well)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, seeds and core removed and finely diced

Preheat broiler. Place desired amount of shredded cheese on tops of triangles. Broil until just melted, being careful not to burn.

For each serving, place 4 of the triangles on a plate (be as artistic or rustic as you like!). Spoon the chanterelle hash on top of the grilled polenta triangles and top with a sprinkling of the grated parmesan cheese.

Finish off the top of the hash with a sprinkling of the chopped parsley and diced tomatoes, scattering more around the perimeter of the polenta triangles. Ready to serve!

one of our favorites. can be used as a topping for a meat dish, with pasta, or just eaten with crackers or bread and a nice wine, freezes nicely as well.

Chanterelle Tempura Soba
by Marc @ NoRecipes
# 29

The hot oil enriches and concentrates the flavours in the Chanterelles while the delicate batter encases them in a crisp jacket that’s neither greasy nor heavy.

The fried mushrooms are fantastic sprinkled with a bit of smoked sea salt, but I took it one step further and used them to top a steaming bowl soba noodles. The tempura adds depth to the broth and while it will loose some of its crispness, the batter soaks up the dashi giving it an effect not unlike the slice of baguette on top of French onion soup.

For Tempura
1/4 lbs Chanterelle Mushrooms
1/2 small sweet onion sliced and broken into pieces
1 handful of green beans cut into 2" lengths
1 large egg yolk
1 C ice cold water (+ a few extra TBS incase the batter is too thick)
3/4 C + 2 Tbs sifted flour put in freezer
1/2 tsp kosher salt

oil for deep frying
Smoked salt to sprinkle

For Soup
3 cups dashi
2 Tbs mirin
1 Tbs soy sauce
1 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)

1 green onion sliced thinly on the bias
a few pieces of yuzu rind

8 oz. soba noodles boiled according to package directions

The trick here is to make the broth first, then have the noodles and tempura done at exactly the same time. If the tempura sits for more than a minute after coming out of the oil, it will get soggy, if the noodles sit for more than a minute after coming out of the pot they will get soft and clump together.

First make the soup by putting the dashi, mirin, soy sauce and salt in a saucepan and bringing to a boil. Keep it warm over low heat.

Prep the Chanterelles by cleaning them thoroughly. A professional chef would shoot me if they heard me telling you to wash them, but I find these particular mushrooms to be very sandy, and there’s no better way to ruin a dish than biting into a clump of grit. I usually give them a good rinse making sure to clean out the gills then let them dry on paper towels for about an hour.

Boil some water for the noodles. Get a wire rack ready for the tempura by covering it with a layer of paper towels. Make sure you have some ice cold water on hand and that the bowl your going to mix the batter in along with the flour is nice and cold (I put them in the freezer for 10 minutes).

In a cast iron or other heavy bottomed pan, add about 1" of oil. Heat the oil until it reaches 340 degrees then quickly make the batter. For the batter, you want to whisk the egg yolk into 1 cup of ice cold water then dump it all into the cold flour then gently stir. The key here is that everything is very cold and that you don’t stir it too much (having lumps is fine). The batter should be like thin pancake batter, if it’s too thick, add a few more tablespoons of ice water.

Using chopsticks (or a fork if you must), quickly dip each mushroom in the batter shaking off the excess (remember you want a thin coat) and carefully drop into the hot oil. If the mushrooms are small, cluster a few mushrooms side­by­side in the oil so they stick together. They should be crisp and float when they are done. For the other veggies I usually throw in a few green beans along with the onions to make a thin round lattice. Sprinkle the finished tempura with sea salt.

To serve the soba, just put the noodles in 2 bowls, top with green onions, pour the soup over the noodles, then top with the tempura and yuzu rind.

by Barbara Lee
# 32

Chanterelles and cream have a certain fondness for each other, and play together beautifully in this recipe. The lightly apricot-scented pate spread on artisinal toast is a perfect pairing with the silky budino, and they join to provide a delight for the senses. Served atop mixed baby greens dressed in a light balsamic-Dijon vinaigrette with just a spinkle of chopped apricots (as a nod to the aroma of fresh chanterelles), you have a truly wonderful dining experience. Please enjoy!

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add mushrooms, basil, garlic and salt. Saute 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Grease 6 ovenproof ramekins or custard cups. Divide mushroom mixture evenly on bottoms of ramekins or cups. Place ramekins in a baking dish large enough to hold them without touching each other. Preheat oven to 325F. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs and cream until well blended. Pour slowly over mushrooms, giving each ramekin an equal amount of egg/cream mix. Heat a quart of water to boiling in a tea kettle or similar. Pour hot water around ramekins in dish until water level equals level of budino inside. Bake for 25 minutes, then check to see if budino is set in center. If not, bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer, checking every 5 minutes. Budino is done when sides are set and center moves ever so slightly when shaken gently. When done, remove from water bath and cool to room temperature on rack. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 1 day before service. Serving instructions are listed after the recipe below.

Chanterelles with Farfalle
by Pete Hautman
# 40

Ingredients:

1/2 pound fresh chanterelles
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 slices bacon (optional)
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or ¼ teaspoon dried thyme)
1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper (optional)
¼ cup finely minced red onion
2 tablespoons water

¼ cup heavy cream
¾ pound farfalle (bowtie pasta)
¼ cup finely chopped parsley leaves
Parmesan reggiano (optional)

Cooking directions:

Slice chantrelles lengthwise into halves, or into quarters if they are enormous.

Heat salted water in a large pot for cooking pasta.

In a large (12 inch+) saute pan, cook bacon in olive oil until very crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Turn up heat.

When olive oil/bacon fat begins to smoke, add chanterelles to the pan. Cook on high heat (stirring no more than once or twice) for six or seven minutes, or until the mushrooms get slightly brown and crispy on the outside and smell fantastic.

Add thyme, chipotle (if using), and minced red onion. Cook for 2 minutes.

Stir in water and butter. Turn off heat and set aside.

Add pasta to boiling water and cook for two minutes less than the package suggests.

Drain pasta and add to mushrooms in saute pan. Turn heat up to high. Stir in cream and cook over high heat two or three minutes, or until the sauce thickens and coats the pasta.

Garnish with minced parsley and crumbled bacon.

Serve with grated parmesan reggiano (for those who insist on putting cheese on absolutely everything).

Easy Dungeness Crab & Chanterelle Risotto
by Milton Tam
# 42

Simplicity rules here. With conventional recipes for risotto, you stir constantly for 20 é 30 minutes and watch the pan carefully until the broth is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Not so in this simplified recipe that uses a Japanese rice cooker! The shallots and rice are first browned in a pan with butter and then transferred to the rice cooker. As the rice cooks, the chanterelles are sautéed. When the rice cooker clicks off, the rice is returned to the pan with the chanterelles, a bit more broth added, and the rice finished by adding the crab and cheese! While the Italian tradition is not to add cheese to a risotto with seafood, I think good quality cheese, when used in moderation, adds a certain sharpness and additional flavor. Real Parmesan cheese is essential, not the stuff that comes in green cans.

1 cup rice for risotto (such as Carnaroli, Vialone Nano or Arborio)
½ cup finely chopped shallots (or onion)
4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter
8 – 10 ounces or more young, firm chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned of all forest debris and broken (not cut) into bite-sized pieces
1 large garlic clove, finely minced
1 cup good quality dry white wine
3 cups chicken stock, preferably fresh or canned
½ pound cooked Dungeness crabmeat, picked over to remove bits of shell
½ cup grated real Parmesan cheese (such as Parmigiano Reggiano)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoons minced chives or Italian flat-leaf parsley

Add wine and stock to a glass or ceramic mixing bowl. Cover bowl and microwave for 3-4 minutes or until warmed, and set aside. Melt half the butter in a medium-large skillet (or shallow saucepan) over medium heat. Add shallots and gently sauté, 2-3 minutes, softening but not browning the shallots. Add rice and stir gently 2 minutes more until it is evenly blended with the butter and shallots. Transfer to a Japanese rice cooker. Ladle in the warmed stock and wine mixture, covering the rice to the depth of the first knuckle of your index finger. Place the lid on the rice cooker, plug it in, and press the switch to start the cooking cycle.

Over medium-high heat, melt the remaining butter in the same skillet used to cook the shallots and rice. Add chanterelles and garlic and sauté, covering briefly and then stirring, until their moisture completely evaporates, they are tender, and are lightly browned, ~5 minutes. Turn off the heat and set the pan aside.

When the indicator light on the rice cooker clicks off, the rice should be at or just before the al dente stage. Immediately add its contents to the sautéed mushrooms in the skillet. Stir briefly to mix in the chanterelles, return the skillet to the burner, and adjust the heat to medium. Add a ladle or so of the remaining stock-wine mixture to the skillet and stir briskly with a spoon or plastic spatula until the starch is released. Continue cooking until the rice is al dente or to your preferred stage of doneness. The finished risotto should be just creamy, and not a soupy consistency, so you may not need to use all of the remaining stock-wine mixture. When your preferred consistency is reached, lower the heat to warm and gently fold in the Parmesan cheese and crab. Wait a minute until everything is incorporated. Then season the risotto to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and spoon into warmed shallow bowls or serving plates. Sprinkle with minced chives or flat-leaf Italian parsley and serve without delay. Total cooking time ~30 minutes.

Serve with a chilled dry Riesling, viognier, or pinot gris. Makes 3-4 servings




Mushroom Lasagna
by Kate@Living the Frugal Life
# 43

This is an unusually light lasagna recipe that really highlights the flavor of fresh mushrooms. It is made in the 10″ square aluminum pan that accompanies certain brands of no-boil lasagna noodles.

3 lbs. fresh chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 lbs. fresh button mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
4 tbsp. butter
6 shallots, peeled and very thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
2 tbsp. fresh sage, cleaned and minced (plus extra whole leaves for garnish)
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
one whole nutmeg, or part of one, for seasoning to taste
3 sheets no-boil pasta, 10" square
3/4 lb. smoked mozzarella, grated
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a very large pan over medium-high heat. When the foaming subsides, add the chanterelle and button mushrooms. If your pan is not large enough to hold them without crowding, work in batches. Saute the mushrooms over high heat for a few minutes, until they take on a little color. Add the sliced shallots, the minced garlic and the minced sage, and saute for two more minutes. (If working in batches, return the cooked mushrooms to the pan at this point.) Add the cream to the pan and allow it to come to a simmer. Cook it for about one minute, just until it thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and a small amount of freshly grated nutmeg. Place the mushroom mixture in a bowl and reserve.

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Using kitchen tongs, blanch the sheets of lasagna noodles for just two minutes and drain into a colander. Do not rinse.

Butter the lasagna pan generously with the remaining tablespoon of butter. Place one sheet of lasagna noodle on the bottom of the pan. Spoon half of the mushroom mixture evenly over the sheet, covering the mixture with half of the grated parmesan cheese, and one quarter of the smoked mozzarella. Repeat this process once and top the second layer with the third sheet of blanched lasagna noodle. Arrange whole sage leaves over the pasta sheet and add the remaining half of the smoked mozzarella on top.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 325F oven for half an hour. Take the lasagna out of the oven and carefully remove the aluminum foil. Set the oven to broil and place the lasagna under the broiler for a few minutes, until it is brown and bubbly on top. Let the lasagna rest for 10 minutes and serve hot. Pass the remaining parmesan at the table.

Braised Rabbit Ravioli with Caramelized Shallot & Chanterelle Jus
by Heather Arndt Anderson
# 46

Cut a 3-lb. rabbit into its 4 limbs and saddle, and set the loin aside (these can be browned in a pan and sliced into medallions, or used for another dish).

After a slow braise (about an hour) with onions and parsley, set it aside to cool and then pull and shred the meat. Mix with fromage blanc (or chevre or boursin), a splash of Mirabelle plum brandy and the cooked rabbit liver, and pulse a few times in the food processor to mince. Add salt and pepper, and fry some sage leaves to crumble in.

Heat up pan of butter over medium-low heat and sweat about a cup of slivered shallots until caramelized. Set aside.

While the rabbit is braising, simmer the carcass, kidneys and liver bouquet garni) (with a mirepoix and binto an unctuous stock (I added a spoonful of veal demiglace to hurry it along). After the meat has been pulled from the limbs, toss those bones into the stock pot, too.

Whip up some pasta dough (using a standard recipe – 2c flour, a half dozen egg yolks, a little olive oil), knead it for ten minutes, and after about a half hour rest, roll the pasta out into two thin sheets (or use a pasta machine). Using a 1/4c ice cream scoop (or spoon), scoop the rabbit filling onto one sheet, egg wash in between (on the ravioli edges) and top it with another sheet. Pat with your fingers to seal the ravioli, and use a round cookie cutter or glass to cut the ravioli. Let dry for about 30 minutes, then cook in boiling water until they float.

While the ravioli are drying, thinly slice a small handful of small chanterelles and gently lay them into the finished, strained stock (in a small pan over medium-high heat) to reduce into a rich jus (about 15 or 20 minutes).

To serve, nestle a warm wad of caramelized onions into a small bowl, top it with two or three of the ravioli, and ladle the piping-hot jus over the top. Top with a fried sage leaf.

Chanterelle & Scallop Tortillas
by Eugenia Bone
# 53

We like to hand these tortillas around in a bit of wax or deli paper. Great with a cold Fat Tire.

Serves 4 as an appetizer (2 per person)

6 diver scallops
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons minced white onion
Juice from ½ lemon
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ lb chanterelles, split (large mushrooms should be quartered)
8 mini white corn tortillas (about 3 inches in diameter
4 tablespoons corn oil
Truffle oil to taste

Place 1 tablespoon of salt in a bowl with 6 cups of water. Add the scallops and let them sit in the fridge overnight. Drain the scallops. Place the scallops in a bowl of cold water and let rest for about 2 hours. Drain the scallops again and place in a food grade baggie with the lemon juice, tarragon, onion, olive oil and black pepper to taste. Refrigerate for a few hours.

Heat two tablespoons of butter in a small non-stick pan. Add the chanterelles and cook until they release their liquor, about 5 minutes. Continue cooking until the liquor has almost evaporated – a few tablespoons in the bottom of the pan is good – about 3 minutes. Add salt to taste.

Remove the scallops from the marinade and chop into bite-sized pieces. Heat the remaining tablespoon of butter in a small non-stick skillet. Add the scallops and saute until they are opaque, about 4 minutes. Check the seasoning.

Heat the corn oil in a medium-sized non-stick skillet and, using tongs, add the tortillas, frying gently until they are pliable – about 30 seconds. Pat dry with paper towels.

To serve, place a tablespoon of scallops and a tablespoon of chanterelles in the middle of each tortilla. Drizzle a bit of truffle oil on top, and fold the tortilla in half.

Serve immediately.

With a slotted spatula transfer fish to a plate. To skillet add Port and soy sauce and on top of stove deglaze over moderately high heat, scraping up any brown bits, 30 seconds. Pour liquid over roasted vegetables, tossing to coat, and arrange fish on top. Roast fish and vegetables in middle of oven 15 to 18 minutes, or until fish is just cooked through.




Chanterelles & Shrimp in Cream with Sautéed Figs & Fresh Thyme
by Joan Churchill
# 56

Recipe:
Serves 4

Ingredients:

5 tablespoons butter
4 large or 6 medium fresh figs, sliced across, not into segments
2 tablespoons olive oil
¾ pound fresh chanterelles, cleaned and cut lengthwise
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Brandy or Armagnac
2 shallots, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, removed from branches and chopped
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, cleaned, and cut down the length
½ cup dry white wine
½ cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons lime juice + extra for garnish
1 tablespoon honey + extra for garnish

1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add the fig slices and sear quickly on both sides, sealing them up and giving a slight crust. Remove to a plate.
2. To the same pan, add the oil then the chanterelles. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Cook another few minutes, tossing in pan until the liquid is evaporated and the mushrooms squeak when touched. Sprinkle with a few drops of brandy or armagnac and move to a bowl.
3. Add another tablespoon of butter to the same skillet, lower heat, and cook the shallot, garlic, and half the fresh thyme together for 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and sautée until they turn pink, 2-3 minutes.
4. Add the shrimp to the chanterelles, cover, and set aside. Raise heat to medium high and add the wine to skillet and reduce to a glaze. Add cream and any juices from the chanterelles and shrimp; reduce slightly over high heat. Add the lime juice, honey, and remaining fresh thyme.
5. Turn heat to medium and return chanterelles and shrimp to the pan; swirl in remaining butter, a half a tablespoon at a time.
6. Divide the figs on four plates, adding any juices to the sauce. Arrange chanterelles and shrimp over the figs, topping with the sauce. Drizzle a few drops of armagnac, honey, and lime juice over the top. Serve.

Note: This is great with freshly cooked wild rice. It adds a nice crunch to the shrimp and enhances the texture and earthiness of the chanterelles.

Cornish Game Hens in Chanterelle White Wine Sauce
by Joanna Grammon
# 61

Quickly brown two Cornish hens in a little olive oil in a Dutch oven or very deep cast iron skillet with a lid. Deglaze the pan with 1/2 cup of white wine and 1/2 can of chicken broth. Cut up 4-5 dried chanterelles, pre-soaked in warm water to cover.
(Before taking off for a hike or to do some berrying, pour the warm water over the dried mushrooms in a small container with a tightly fitting lid. Soak at least 45 minutes. If soaking mushrooms longer than an hour, put sealed soaking container on ice in ice chest.)
Add the mushroom pieces to the pan with the soaking water and a little butter.
(This recipe also works with a half-pint jar of chanterelles canned in butter. Put the fresh mushrooms in the jar with butter, then can in a pressure cooker, following directions for time. Enough liquid comes out of the mushrooms. When cooking this dish using home-canned chanterelles, add the mushroom juices and butter from the jar, plus the mushrooms, cut up.)
Turn the burner down to simmer, then season the hens with salt and pepper, placing two strips of fresh chives and a sprig of lemon thyme in each body cavity. Cover tightly and simmer on low for 20 minutes to half an hour, checking for doneness.
Remove hens to platter; cover loosely with foil, and reduce juices, adding a little more butter if you like a thicker sauce. Serve over Herbed Jasmine Rice, recipe below.

HERBED JASMINE RICE
In a heavy-bottomed two-quart saucepan, heat 3 T. of olive oil, then lightly toast one and one-half cups of jasmine rice, stirring constantly. After the grains become slightly translucent, toss in the leaves from three or four sprigs of thyme. Add water, salt. Cook tightly covered. Remove from heat, and let stand three or four minutes, then fluff with fork. Top with with the sauce from the Cornish hens.
Green beans with a little lemon zest are a nice accompaniment.

While camping, it’s still possible to enjoy fresh herbs. Sprinkle a little cool water on a paper towel, then loosely roll a handful of your favorite herbs in the paper towel. Place the towel in a zipper plastic bag in the corner of the ice chest or camper refrigerator where it won’t get crushed.)

This meal was cooked on a campstove and served for dinner at a campground during a huckleberry-picking expedition in the Cascades.

Venison & Black Chanterelle Whiskey Cream Sauce
by Tue Petersen
# 68

Ingredients:
- water
- 20 g (ca. 1 oz) dried black chanterelles
- potatoes
- oil
- salt & pepper
- venison
- 1 medium red onion, chopped finely
- 0.5 dL (1/4 cup) single malt whiskey
- 1 dL (2/5 cup) cream
- the leaves of 2 twigs of fresh rosemary

Since I could only find dried black chanterelles the first thing to do was to put these in a bowl and pour ca. 1 L (1 qt) of hot water over them and let them stand for at least 20 minutes. When they were drained, the water was saved for later.

The potatoes were washed and boiled in lightly salted water.

The venison was cut like small steaks, which were seasoned with salt and pepper. In a pan with a little oil they were cooked to the desired degree (medium for us). After removing the venison from the pan the onion was added, and after a few minutes the drained black chanterelles. A few minutes later the whiskey and cream was added, and brought to a boil. After a few minutes 2 dL (4/5 cup) of the black chanterelle water was added followed by the rosemary leaves. After simmering briefly it was served.




Chanterelle & Green Corn Tamalon
by Ken Hulme
# 69

Recipe: Mushrooms in Mexican food? You bet! Fungus of various types have featured in traditional Mexican cuisine for hundreds of years. This casserole-size tamale is baked rather than steamed, which makes it even easier to prepare.

For the Tamal:
4 oz Lard
1-1/2 cup Masa Harina (available in large grocery stores or ethnic markets)
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 to 2/3 cup Chicken Broth
1 package Corn Husks
1/2 cup Sour Cream

For the Filling:
8 oz. Chanterelles, sliced, including stems
1 cup Corn, frozen not canned
1 small Onion, diced
2 teaspoons Cumin, divided
2 tablespoons Butter, unsalted

For the Salsa Verde:
3 large Poblano Peppers
8-10 Tomatillos
1 teaspoon Hot Pepper Sauce, to taste
1/4 cup Chicken Broth
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to Broil, with rack in the highest position. Place corn husks in hot tap water to soften.

Saute the filling ingredients (use 1 tsp. cumin) in a skillet, until golden brown and delicious. Set aside.

Make the Salsa Verde:
Core and seed the poblanoes. Husk and halve the tomatillos. Place in a shallow pan, sprinkle with salt, and broil 8-10 minutes to blacken. When blackened, place in a food processor or blender with hot sauce, juices from the broiling pan and 1/4 cup chicken broth. Pulse until you get a chunky sauce – about 1-1/2 cups.

Change oven to Bake at 400F.

Make the Tamalon:
Beat lard and baking powder until light in texture, 2 minutes or so. Then beat in the masa and broth in 3 additions to create a soft batter.

Line a 9-10″ covered casserole with corn husks. Spread half of the dough on the bottom and sides of the dish.

Add mushroom and corn filling. Dust with cumin. Add half the salsa. Top with the other half of the batter and seal the edges.

Bake @ 400F for 25 minutes; reduce heat to 300, cover and bake until top springs back when golden brown – 20 minutes more.

Cut into wedges and serve with a splash of the reserved salsa and sour cream for garnish.

Chanterelle & Fresh Mozzarella Stuffed Squash Blossoms with Tomato & Fire Roasted Pepper Coulis
by The Wind Attack
# 71

Sauce
3 Cloves Garlic
2 medium Heirloom Tomatoes
2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small Red Pepper
pinch (smoked) sea salt
1/4 cup fresh Basil Leaves
2 tbs White Wine

Filling
1 cup Fresh Wild Chantarelle Mushrooms, washed and coarsely chopped.
1 tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Shallot, minced
2 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 tsp minced Fresh Thyme
1/2 cup Baby Squash (from the blossoms), thinly sliced
1/4 cup White Wine
1/4 lb Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, cut into 1/2″ pieces

8 Squash Blossoms, stamens removed, thoroughly cleaned*

1. Preheat oven to 375

2. In a small sauce pan, heat the 2 tsp olive oil under very low heat. After about five minutes add the garlic and let sit.

3. Meanwhile, roast your red pepper over an open stove flame. Once completely charred, place on a plate and cover with a bowl and set aside for five to ten minutes to steam.

3. Remove any tough parts from the tomatoes and place in a blender and blend on high until completely pureed.

4. Once the pepper has steamed, rub off the charred skin, and remove the stem and seeds. Add the pepper to the blender and blend with the tomato puree.

4. Once the garlic starts sizzling a big, add the tomato-pepper puree. Turn up the heat to medium low and let simmer, stirring occasionally.

5. In a medium skillet, heat the tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. After about a minute, add shallot and cook for about two minutes, until slightly translucent. Add the mushrooms, garlic and thyme and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. When the mushrooms start to become tender, add the wine and baby squash and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and set aside.

6. Using your hands, carefully open a blossom and spoon in a generous tablespoon of filling. Add in a few pieces of the mozzarella then close the blossom back up. Repeat with each of the blossoms and place them on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.

7. Wipe off any liquid that leaks onto the sheet. Bake the blossoms for about 15-20 minutes, until they have wilted around the filling and you can easily put a knife through the base of the blossom.

8. The sauce should have thickened slightly, but not by much at this point. Remove from heat and pour back into the blender. Add the basil leaves and wine and blend until the leaves are thoroughly incorporated.

9. Pour the sauce onto a plate and place the blossoms on top. Enjoy!

*I admittedly failed to get all of the dirt out of the inside of my blossoms and had a few bites with a bit of grittiness. I should have given them a bit of a cold water bath.

Chanterelle-Huckleberry Stuffing Cups
by Michelle Anderson
# 77

After moving back to the Northwest, I was inspired to create a stuffing recipe that reflects the best of what the area has to offer. This stuffing recipe takes advantage of many wonderful, earthy flavors indigenous of the Northwest region of the United States. Ingredients like chanterelle mushrooms, fresh herbs, huckleberries and pine nuts impart such a wonderfully aromatic taste to this dish. I can’t help but think that had pilgrims landed on the Northwest coast rather than the Northeast, this is the kind of stuffing they would have created.

Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 small Walla Walla sweet onion, diced
1 small purple onion, diced
4 ribs celery, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound chanterelle mushrooms wiped clean, stems trimmed and halved as needed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage Kosher salt, to taste Ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup Pinot Gris, Northwest Varietal
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 egg
1/2 pound day old challah bread, cubed into 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes and toasted in a warm oven
1 cup toasted pine nuts
1 cup huckleberries (or blueberries)
1 large tart apple, pared, cored and diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
4 tablespoons truffle oil (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and celery; cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and mushrooms. Continue to cook until mushrooms are soft, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in the thyme, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper.

Deglaze the pan with the wine. Cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the milk, chicken stock and eggs. Stir in the bread cubes and cooled mushroom and onion mixture. Stir until well combined.
Stir in the pine nuts, huckleberries, apple and parsley. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper.

Spoon stuffing into two well buttered muffin pans, compacting slightly. Cover with foil and bake in an oven preheated to 350° for about 20 minutes or until heated through. Uncover and drizzle with truffle oil; bake, uncovered, until top is crisp, about 15 minutes.

1 cup corn fresh or frozen ( thawed and drained)
1/2 cup onion diced
1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
1/2 cup orange bell pepper diced
box or bag of cornbread mix

In a good seasoned cast iron skillet cook bacon until crisp, remove and reserve. When cooled chop cooked bacon. Remove all but 2 tablespoons bacon grease, and reserve. Heat skillet and add corn, stirring until very brown, remove and reserve, add chanterelles, cook until tender and slightly brown. Remove and combine in a large mixing bowl with corn. Add onion and more bacon fat if needed, cook until slightly browned, then add bell peppers. Cook until tender.
Remove pepper and onion mix, combine with corn and chanterelles. Wipe skillet clean with paper towels, and apply a good coating of bacon fat. Place skillet in oven.

Chanterelle Zucchini Boats
by Tim Kline
# 79

This is a simple, but elegant, and versatile recipe. Plenty of room to substitute, using whatever is in season and fresh to stuff the zucchini with. Delicious!

about a pound of fresh chanterelles mushrooms
two medium fresh zucchini
six garlic cloves
olive oil
parmesan cheese
fresh ground pepper
non-iodized sea salt
one medium green pepper
two fresh ripe tomatoes
fine dry breadcrumbs
parsley

Preheat the oven to 375

Splash a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a medium frying pan. Peal the garlic, and add the whole cloves to the oil in the pan and cook over medium heat, turning the cloves occasionally. While the cloves are slowly browning, and saturating the olive oil with flavor, clean and slice and chop the chanterelles into small, medium and larger pieces.

Stir the garlic. Add the chanterelles whenever the garlic is lightly browned. You should turn the heat up for a few minutes, and stir, until much of the water is out of the mushrooms. Then turn the heat down to medium high.

Wash the zucchini, and slice off the ends. Then cut lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out all the seeds. Now you have four zucchini boats.

Lightly coat a pan or cookie sheet with olive oil. Place the zucchini boats on the pan. Lightly coat the zucchini boats with olive oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.

Stir the chanterelles. They should cook for around ten minutes, until they are quite dry, and starting to brown.

Wash the tomatoes and the green pepper, and chop the ends off. Then slice into sections, and chop the sections into pieces. Slice and dice the green pepper into even smaller pieces than the tomatoes.

Once the chanterelles are browning, turn the heat up again and when the pan is hot, dump in the tomato and pepper pieces. Add some salt and pepper, and stir frequently. Cook until most of the juice from the tomatoes is gone.

Fill the zucchini boats with the chanterelles mixture. Sprinkle some fine breadcrumbs over the top. Sprinkle some finely chopped parsley over the breadcrumbs.

Place the boats into the pre-heated oven, and bake for around 20 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are starting to brown.

Enjoy a delicious chanterelle feast!
