Thursday
Jan 3,2008

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 boletes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or more
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 prosciutto slices, minced
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh basil, or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

Remove the bolete stems and save for another dish or dry the stems for future use. In a sauté pan or skillet, sauté the tops of the mushroom caps in the olive oil for a few minutes or until they turn brown. With a slotted spoon remove them to a warm baking dish. In the oil that remains in the pan, sauté the garlic and prosciutto until the garlic is translucent. Allow the mixture to cool somewhat, then stir in the egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, basil, salt, and pepper.
Stuff the caps and bake them in a preheated 400º oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 tsp. black pepper or to taste
    • 1 tbs. chili paste or 3/4 tsp. cayenne hot pepper, or to taste
    • 10 cups king bolete
    • 4 cloves of garlic
    • 2 tsp. mellow miso
    • 1 tsp. rosemary, ground
    • 1/2 tsp. thyme, ground
    • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
    • 1/4 tsp. juniper berries, ground (optional)

    Directions

    Puree all ingredients except the mushroom caps in a blender. Then toss with the mushroom caps. Broil on a rack in a broiler 4-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Broilers differ greatly, so check often to make sure the boletes don’t begin to burn. Turn with a spatula, tongs, or fork and broil 4-8 minutes, or until you’ve lightly browned the other side.
