Swedish Pancakes with Mushrooms

These mushroom filled pancakes pack a lot of flavor into a little bundle. Garlic, onions, mushrooms, and chives combine with cream for a decadent filling ready to be wrapped in its pancake blanket and on the table in no time.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1 pancake

Ingredients

For the pancakes
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Pinch salt
Butter, to cook

Directions

Beat all ingredients except butter together thoroughly. Unlike standard pancakes, you want a smooth, lumpless batter.
Heat a flat-bottomed skillet or crepe pan over medium. Add a bit of butter, let melt, and pour approximately ⅓ cup of batter into pan, swirling pan to create an even coating. When edges are dry, carefully slide spatula around edges, then flip and cook for approximately 1 minute more. Remove to  a warmed plate and repeat until batter is gone, adding more butter every few pancakes.

For the filling
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
8 ounces baby bella or button mushrooms
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, plus extra uncut chives for tying (if desired)
1 pound fresh spinach
Olive oil

Directions

Gently wash mushrooms and pat dry. Slice in half lengthwise, then cut into thin vertical slices.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for about a minute more.

Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add lemon zest, cream, and chives, and cook at medium for 5 minutes, then reduce heat and let simmer.

Heat a skillet over medium and add a swirl of olive oil. Once heated, add spinach and stir to coat. Cook until spinach is wilted and reduced by half.

To assemble
Place 1 pancake on a plate. In the center, place a spoonful of spinach, then spoon over mushroom mixture. Fold edges over to create a square packet. Slide 1 chive underneath, then bring together and tie as if string. Alternately, place spinach and mushrooms in a strip down the pancake and fold sides together.

Spaghetti Squash with Mushroom Alfredo Sauce

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

1 whole spaghetti squash
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 14-oz package sliced white mushrooms
1 medium white onion, diced
1 1/2c light coconut milk (canned)
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp cornstarch plus 2 tsp water made into a slurry
3-4 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Begin by cooking the spaghetti squash. The easiest way to cook spaghetti squash is in the microwave. Split lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Place cut sides down in a glass dish (like a pie plate) with about 1/4 cup water. Cook 12 minutes on high, one half at a time. Let halves cool for about 10 minutes before using a fork to separate and scrape out the strands.

Saute mushrooms and diced onion in olive oil for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, on medium heat until the onions begin to brown. Then, pour in coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and add the nutritional yeast.

Prepare a slurry with the cornstarch and water in a separate bowl. Once well combined, slowly add it to the coconut milk mixture, stirring constantly. You will see the sauce start to thicken. Meanwhile, remove the tiny thyme leaves from their stems by pulling the stems through your fingers from top to bottom, against the direction of the stems. Add thyme to the coconut milk mixture.

Plate the spaghetti squash and top it with the alfredo sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Mushroom Sage Focaccia

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon yeast
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
½ cup water
1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 tablespoon diced shallot
1 tablespoon fresh chopped sage

Directions

Mix together flours, yeast, and salt in a large bowl or stand mixer. Slowly add 1 tablespoon olive oil and the water while stirring the dry ingredients. Once the dough comes mostly together in a large ball, work it together with your hands, then turn out onto a floured surface. Knead dough to form a smooth ball, then place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk; about two hours.

Punch down dough and turn out onto a floured surface. Roll out dough into a large circle or rectangle and let rest.

Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan over medium. Add ½ tablespoon olive oil and heat through. Add the mushrooms, shallot, and sage, and saute until the mushrooms are softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

Make indentations in the dough using your fingers, then drizzle remaining olive oil over the top. Scatter mushroom mixture over the dough, then sprinkle on remaining salt.

Bake at 375 degrees on a pizza stone or greased baking sheet for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown.

Butter Roasted Mushroom Sandwich

Yield: 2

Ingredients

3 ½ ounces fresh chèvre
½ cup grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 ½ teaspoons minced chives
Grated zest from half a lemon
1 tablespoon butter
⅛ teaspoon dried chili flakes
3 ounces crimini, cleaned and trimmed, cut in halves or quarters, depending on size
3 ounces king oyster mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed, sliced lengthwise
3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed, torn into rough pieces
Kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
1 medium shallot, minced
½ teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (about 3 sprigs worth, picked from their stems)
2 medium buns, split
½ cup loosely packed arugula leaves
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Juice from half a lemon

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the chèvre, all but 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan, the herbs and lemon zest. Mix lightly. Set aside.

In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has bubbled, sprinkle in the dried chili, raise the heat to medium-high and add the mushrooms. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring often, then add the shallot and season with salt and lots of black pepper. Continue to sauté until the mushrooms are well-browned and most of their moisture has evaporated, around 6 minutes more. Remove from the heat, check for seasoning, and stir in the thyme. Set aside.

Divide the cheese mixture over the bottom halves of the buns. Sprinkle the reserved Parmesan over top, then place the open sandwiches (both the cheese sides and plain sides) under a hot broiler until the cheese is golden and the bread is toasted.

Meanwhile, toss the arugula with a pour of olive oil, some lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

When the sandwiches are ready, pile half the mushrooms on one cheese toast. Drizzle over a few drops of olive oil, and lemon juice, if desired. Top with the arugula and the top piece of bread, pressing down lightly. Repeat with the second sandwich. Eat immediately.
