Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes | Serves: 4-6 people

Ingredients

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
1/2 cup white wine

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!
Mushrooms Soup

Pressure Cooker Cream of Mushroom Soup with Smoky Sour Cream

The hottest cooking appliance these days has got to be the electric pressure cooker. Unlike the scary stove top cookers of old, these operate as smoothly as a rice cooker or a crock pot and allow you to make foods that usually require a long simmer/braise/roast in a fraction of the time. Speed is great but it’s not the only reason to pressure cook as the actual method results in food that retains more nutrients and has more intense flavours than the same dish when cooked all day in the crock pot.

Ingredients

Mushroom Soup:
Approx 4 tbls of olive oil
1kg (2 lbs) of King Oyster mushrooms, Shiitakes or a combination of both, roughly chopped

1 litre (4 cups) mushroom stock or broth (boxed mushroom stock but you can use mushroom bouillon or, if you don’t have that, chicken broth) – top up with water if you are a bit short
7 or 8 sprigs fresh thyme, tied in a little bundle with kitchen twine
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
250 ml evaporated milk
Italian Parsley, chopped coarsely

Smoky Sour Cream:
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp Hot Smoked paprika
Juice from half of a lemon
Pinch kosher salt

  3. Add one more tbls of olive oil and saute the onion, until soft, add in the garlic for 1 minute and then add the sherry, deglazing the pan with it and let it come to a boil. Pour in the mushroom stock, add the mushrooms back in, throw in the thyme, grind in some black pepper and lock the lid in.
  4. Some machines require you to hit the cancel button and then another button to set the time for cooking, so use whatever method/buttons your cooker requires. If you are using a stove top, old school pressure cooker, disregard all the button pressing and pressure cook as usual.
  5. Cook the soup on high pressure for 10 minutes. While the soup is cooking, mix all of the Smokey Sour Cream together and set aside. When the time is do a quick release, fish the thyme stalks out of the soup, add in the evaporated milk and then using an immersion blender, puree the soup until it’s quite smooth.
  6. Serve with a dollop of Smokey Sour Cream and plenty of freshly chopped parsley.

Roasted Mushroom Garlic Toast with Crème Fraîche

True mushroom lovers relish the simplicity of the British classic, mushrooms on toast. I mean what is better than toast piled high with buttery sautéed mushrooms? Garlic toasted sourdough and crème fraîche elevate this roasted version but it’s the locally grown cremini, cinnamon cap, and oyster mushrooms that steal the show.

Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto

Cozy comfort food at it’s finest with an EASY dairy-free risotto the entire family will love.

Recipe and photo by Samantha from My Kitchen Love.

Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 25 mins

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil
6-8 thinly sliced pieces of pancetta or prosciutto (optional)
2 cups sliced or chopped mushrooms (button, crimini, oyster and/or shiitake all work)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1.5 cups Arborio rice
1/4 cup dry white wine
5 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 tsp dried thyme or 3-4 thyme sprigs (fresh)
1/2 lb asparagus, trimmed and chopped
salt and pepper to season
*optional garnish: 1 tsp truffle oil

Method

1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large wide skillet or a large saucepan and add pancetta or prosciutto (if using). Cook until browned and crispy, flipping once. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel. Set aside.
2. Heat broth in a medium saucepan on a burner adjacent to the skillet the risotto will be made in.
3. Immediately add mushrooms to the pan and toss in oil. Very lightly season with salt and pepper. Allow mushrooms to cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes per side (flip once juice have evaporated and mushrooms brown on bottom side).
4. Add garlic and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
5. Add rice to pan and wine. Stir to combine flavours and cook until wine has been absorbed but the rice. Add thyme
6. Add broth by 2-3 ladlefuls, stirring to fully combine and adding more broth as the rice becomes dry and broth is absorbed.
7. Before the last 2-3 ladlefuls of broth is added, add asparagus to the skillet.
8. Add last 2-3 ladlefuls of broth and stir to combine.
9. Taste. If needed very lightly season with pepper (and salt although I find it almost never needs it with the pancetta or prosciutto). Drizzle with optional truffle oil if desired.
