This month on the Tried and Tasted series hosted by Priya, the blog being featured is “Chef in You”. It features as one of my daily haunts.
Now I am not too fond of mushrooms but this time I let the wise guy pick up some, thought would use it in an omlette or may be even some good fried rice. But a quick search on Chef in you and this recipe was an instant click. So I ordered the wise guy to go for it and he actually made this recipe with minimal help from me. We did not have a few ingredients on hand, so like any good cook I went with my own substitutions which are marked in red.
Ingredients, original recipe can be found here
1 1/2 cups chopped button mushrooms
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1/2 cup cheddar, grated
2 tbsp grated parmesan
1/4 cup milk ( or replace it with egg)
2-3 tbsp chopped parsley
1 cup panko bread crumbs ( Italina style crumbs with herbs and spices adds more taste)
In a non stick pan, add little olive oil and saute onions and mushrooms till soft. Set aside.
Add the chopped nuts to the mushroom mixture and mix well.
Then add the cheese, bread crumbs, chives, egg/milk and combine well.
Grease the baking dish (I used a square pan), line it with aluminum foil and then press the mixture into the tin.
Bake till firm about 45-60min at 400F. Leave for 5 min, then turn it out into a plate. Cut them into slices and garnish. Serve with any kind of sauce you like
A very nutty delightful dish, great as a snack since there it not much of a preparation. Loved it!
