More Recipes!

I realized that some of the mushroom recipes I give out at the Elora Farmers’ Market weren’t up on our blog.  Here are a few you might not have seen yet!

Breaded Mushroomsbrown

2 eggs, beaten

2 tbsp. water

1 c. seasoned breadcrumbs

1 c. flour

Salt and pepper to taste

Oil for deep frying


I like to use whole mushroom caps (either oyster or shiitake), but cut larger ones into bite-sized pieces.  Beat eggs with water lightly in a small bowl.  In separate bowl, stir together breadcrumbs, flour and seasonings.

Dip mushrooms into egg and water mixture, coating well, then into breadcrumb mix.

Heat oil in deep skillet, add mushrooms, a few at a time.  Turn over when first side is brown, 2-3 minutes, continue frying until other side is browned.  Remove to plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Serve while warm and watch them disappear!


Ralph’s Favourite Rice

2 c. uncooked rice

4 c. water or broth

Salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 – 3/4 lb. mushrooms (any varieties)

1/2 small onion, diced

2 tbsp. oil for frying


Cook rice with water or broth, following package directions.  Meanwhile, saute onion and shiitake mushrooms (if using), until onions are translucent.  Add oyster mushrooms and cook a few minutes longer.  Stir into cooked rice and enjoy!


Bow Tie Pasta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

1 lb. uncooked bow tie pasta

1 tbsp. butter

3/4 lb. mushrooms, sliced

1 clove garlic,minced

1/3 c. chopped shallots

1/2 c. chopped onion

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/4 c. dry white wine

2/3 c. heavy cream

1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Minced parsley for garnish


Cook pasta and drain.  Saute mushrooms in butter with onion, shallots and garlic on med/high heat.  Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add wine, cook 2 mins., or until liquid evaporates.  Remove from heat.  Add cooked pasta, cream, cheese, 2 tbsp parsley, tossing gently to coat.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Garnish with parsley, if desired.  Serve immediately.  Serves 8.

(P.S.  For a VERY quick creamy pasta dish, use one of my 200 gm. tubs of mushroom dip from the market.  Stir into cooked pasta, add any steamed or stir-fried veggies and enjoy!)
