MUSHROOM RECIPES BY CHEF GEORGE KRUMOV

CRAB STUFFED MUSHROOMS RECIPE

Ingredients: 16 large button mushrooms (also called silver dollar or stuffers), 4 oz. cream cheese, 6 oz. can crab meat, 4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 tablespoons regular breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon panko breadcrumbs, 1 teaspoon chopped parsley, two dashes Tabasco, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon roasted garlic and pepper seasoning, the juice of 1/4 lemon, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.

Recipe: Wash the mushrooms gently and remove the stems. Toss the cleaned mushrooms in a mixing bowl with the roasted garlic and pepper seasoning, salt, oil and lemon juice. Arrange them in a baking tray with the gills facing down over parchment paper. Bake the mushroom cups in a preheated oven at 425 F for 15 minutes or until soft. Cooking time will depend on the size of the mushrooms. Remove from the oven and let the baked mushrooms cool down. In the meantime, mix cream cheese, Tabasco, crab meat, parsley, breadcrumbs and Worcestershire sauce, and fill the mushrooms with the mixture after they are cold. Top the stuffed mushrooms with the shredded mozzarella and bake them in a preheated oven at 400 F until the cheese is nicely melted on top.

WILD MUSHROOM BRUSCHETTA

Ingredients: 8 slices of French baguette, cut on angle 1-inch thick, 8 oz. shiitake and oyster mushrooms mix, 2 tablespoons garlic-flavored oil, 2 shallots, finely chopped, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, 50 ml. dry white wine, 1 teaspoon chopped parsley, 2 oz. goat cheese, salt and black pepper to taste.

Recipe: Grill the baguette slices over fire-grill on both sides or toast them in a toaster. If you are using grill put the mushrooms over the grill for 1-2 minutes to get some smoky flavour, if not skip this step. Heat 1 tablespoon of the garlic flavored oil in a skillet and saute the shallots for 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes more. Deglaze with the white wine and add the balsamic vinegar. Cook until au-sec. Season the wild mushrooms with salt and pepper. Brush the toasted baguette slices with the rest of the oil and top them with the wild mushroom bruschetta topping. Crumble the goat cheese on top and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.


RISOTTO WITH PORCINI MUSHROOMS

Ingredients: 1 oz. dry porcini mushrooms, soaked in 1 cup of hot water for 45 minutes; 2 cups arborio rice; 2 tbsp. butter; 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil; 1 medium onion, chopped; 2 cloves garlic, chopped; 1/2 cup dry white wine; 5 cups chicken stock, or as needed; sea salt and black pepper to taste; 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley; 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Recipe: Drain and rinse the mushrooms, reserving the liquid. Cut them into strips. Heat the butter and the olive oil in a large heavy skillet and saute the onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Deglaze with the wine, and continue stirring until the wine has almost evaporated. Add the arborio rice and saute 2 minutes more. Still stirring, add a cup of chicken stock. When the stock is absorbed by the rice, add the sliced porcini, and another cup of stock. When the stock has been absorbed again, add the strained mushroom liquid. Continue adding chicken stock as needed until the rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Use as much stock as needed. The rice is cooked when it is tender and creamy, but not mushy. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, stir in parsley and the Parmigiano-Reggiano and serve.
