Serves: 4 | Prep time: 30 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

6 lasagna noodles (about 2 inches wide)
1 Tbsp butter
1 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
5 cups assorted baby greens such as spinach, kale, chard, arugula
1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp butter
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2/3 cups extra-smooth ricotta cheese
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch nutmeg
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
canola oil for greasing skillet

Directions

  1. In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the noodles for 2 minutes less than package instructions for al dente; drain.
  2. While the noodles are cooking, in a 10-inch cast iron skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened and almost no liquid remains, about 7 minutes. Add the baby greens, and cook, stirring occasionally until they begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. Scrape into a bowl. Stir in the salt and pepper.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 8 minutes. Add 3/4 cup of the mozzarella, the ricotta, mustard, cayenne pepper and nutmeg. Stir constantly until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
  4. Wipe out the cast iron skillet after you cook the mushrooms and greens and give it a little greasing with canola oil. . Pour 1/2 cup of the sauce into bottom of the skillet. Arrange 3 of the noodles over top, you may need to trim the ends to fit skillet. Top with half of the mushroom mixture. Spoon half of the remaining sauce over top. Arrange remaining noodles, perpendicular to bottom noodles, over top. Top with the remaining mushroom mixture, sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 5. Bake in 400°F oven until mozzarella is melted and sauce is bubbly, about 1015 minutes. Broil until the top is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Pork Mushroom Dumplings

Ingredients

2 cups napa cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 tsp plus 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tbls grated ginger
1/4 cup finely chopped Chinese chives or green onion
1/2 cup ground pork
1/2 cup ground white button mushrooms (whizzed in a mini food processor or hand chop finely)
1/8th tsp pepper
1/4 cup chicken stock or water
1.5 tbls soy sauce
1 tbls shoaxing wine (omit if you can’t find it)
1 tbls canola oil
1.5 tbls sesame oil
31-35 wonton wrappers (about 3.5” round wrappers are best)

Directions

  1. Put some parchment on a baking tray.
  2. Toss the cabbage with 1/2 tsp salt and set aside for 15 minutes to draw out excess moisture. Drain the cabbage in a strainer, rinse with water and squeeze out all the water. You should be left with about 1/2 cup of cabbage.
  3. Add the ginger, chives, pork and mushrooms and mix until combined. In another small bowl, mix 1/2 tsp salt, pepper, sesame oil, stock, soy sauce, shoaxing wine and canola oil and fold into the meat/mushroom mixture until incorporated. You should have about 2 cups of fillings.
  4. Lay out your wrappers and spoon about 1/2 tbls of filling on each one. (if your wrappers are larger or smaller than 3.5”, you will have to adjust slightly)
  5. Dip your finger in water and moisten around the outer edge of the wrapper before you fold in half.
  6. You can hand pleat the dumplings, you can use a dumpling mold to crimp it or you can use a fork to seal the edges of the dumpling. Set aside on the parchment lined tray until they are all done.
  7. If you are not making the dish right away, cover the tray of dumplings with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for a few hours.
  8. You can also throw them in the freezer, on the tray and after they are hard, put them in a freezer bag for later. When cooking from frozen, just drop them in the water straight from the freezer.
  9. Bring a large pot of water to a light simmer and then add your first batch of dumplings – don’t over crowd the pot. When they float to the top, after 5-8 minutes, they are done so remove with a slotted spoon and place a few of them in each shallow soup bowl.

  2. Drain the mushrooms through a strainer, keep the liquid and set aside.
  3. Combine the crimini mushrooms, the strained soaking liquid, the mushroom broth, ginger, green onion, soy sauce and black vinegar in a pot.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add in the enoki mushrooms after ten minutes.

Grilled Mushroom Quesadillas

Grilled Mushroom Quesadillas

Recipe courtesy of The Cookie Writer.

Serves: 2 | Prep: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Total: 30 minutes

Ingredients

1 lb mushrooms (I used a mix of button, mini bella, and portobello), halved (if using portobello, make sure it is chopped roughly the same size as the other mushrooms for even cooking!)
1 large jalapeno, sliced into rings (optional)
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. olive oil + more for greasing
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded sharp cheese (Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, etc.)
4 (8 – 10 inch) flour tortillas

Directions

  1. Prepare propane grill by heating three burners over medium-high heat.
  2. While BBQ is heating, slice mushrooms. Combine jalapenos, vinegar, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add mushrooms and toss until well combined! You can also prepare this mix a day in advance.
  4. Adjust burners to medium heat (looking for 400F-425F.) Lightly oil grill.
  5. Pour mushrooms onto grill, taking care not to lose anything between the bars (looking at you, jalapenos!)
  6. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, trying to maintain 400F-425F temperature. Flip mushrooms and cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until browned to your liking (I like seeing how far I can go without burning them!)
  7. Move to a bowl.
  8. Lower heat to medium-low (350F)
  9. Brush one side of each tortilla with some oil.
  10. Place two, oil-side-down, onto grill. Quickly top each evenly with mushroom mixture and cheese. Top with remaining tortillas, oil-side-up.
  11. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes. Flip and cook for a few more minutes (keep an eye on them or you may end up with some char like I did!)
  12. Remove from heat, slice, and serve with your favourite toppings!

Ingredients

A small basket of mixed mushrooms (2 portobellini, 1 bundle enoki, 2 oysters, 6 shiitake)
10 oven-ready lasagna sheets
140 g fresh mozzarella
60 g Italian mild Asiago cheese
30 g Parmigiano Reggiano
40 g Taleggio
2 Tbsp. e.v.o. oil
2 cloves garlic

2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 Tbsp fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of peperoncini (red chilli flakes)
125 ml of Mushroom Panna (or heavy cream)
125 ml Half and Half cream

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Wash, dry and chop mushrooms into slivers.
  3. In a medium cast iron pan drizzle in e.v.o. oil and toss in garlic and peperoncini, bring to a med to high heat.
  4. Throw in mushrooms and begin to sauté for 2-3 minutes, sprinkle in 1/2 the parsley and all of the thyme, and stir.
  5. Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper, and when mushrooms begin to soften add in the white wine and let it cook till the wine evaporates about 5 minutes. Finish with a few drops of white truffle oil. Take mushroom out of the pan leaving a few for flavoring and in the same cast iron pan pour in the Mushroom Panna and Half and Half cream. When the mixture is warm add in the Taleggio and Asiago cheese. Stir until cheese is all nice and melted inside and sauce is thickened a bit, about 5 minutes.
  6. While sauce is cooking put a pot of salted water to boil.
  7. Place lasagna sheets in boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes, take out and place in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking time. If you want to omit this step, just add more liquid to the sauce and use the uncooked lasagna sheets.

Directions

  1. In an 8-inch by 11-inch baking dish, spoon some of the cream sauce onto the bottom. Layer the lasagna sheets letting some of the sheets to come up the sides. Spoon some more of the cream sauce and sprinkle over the top with the Parmigiano and mozzarella, and finish with a sprinkling of the sautéed mushrooms.
  2. Take some more lasagna sheets and lay perpendicular to the last layer again allowing the sheets to come up the sides a bit. Spoon sauce on top and sprinkle with Parmigiano and mozzarella and finish again with sautéed mushrooms.
  3. Continue this until you have completed 4 layers and the top will be finished with sauce, cheese, and mushrooms.
  4. Place in the preheated oven and cook for 20 minutes, then turn oven to low broil and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  5. Take out of the oven and let rest for about 10 minutes.
  6. Cut and serve. Enjoy!
