Fresh from the Farmer: Favourite Summer Recipes
Ever wonder if mushroom farmers actually like mushrooms? Well guess what, they do! And they even have recipes!
Grilled Crimini Mushrooms by Nick Pora of Continental Mushrooms
“Remove the stem and put the mushrooms gill side up on the BBQ. Place a dab of real butter in the center, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme, and then grill for 5-7 minutes. When the butter has melted and the mushrooms have softened they are done. You can then serve them as an appetizer or even with a nice steak.”
Marinated Portabella Mushrooms by Lawrence Zimmermann of Highline Mushrooms
“My favourite mushroom recipe happens to be with portabella mushrooms. It is very simple, take a portabella mushroom and remove the stem, rinse the mushroom under cold running water on both sides, and then I marinate it with either Italian salad dressing or roasted red pepper. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and then just throw it on the grill, gills up for about 7 minutes on one side and the 5-6 on the other. It’s wonderful it has the texture of being a meat like a steak, but the flavour of the mushroom and the salad dressing is just wonderful!”
