Chanterelle Rice

It’s an early year for that golden wild mushroom, the chanterelle. I love these things! I found some at CostCo and bought a package – then my husband and grandson and I went into the forest to find some too. It’s a great day trip! Well with all those shrooms, what should I do with them?

Always cook wild mushrooms. They are not safe to eat raw. It’s also not a good idea to wash them. They will absorb the water and get soggy. Just wipe them gently with soft cloth.

Now that you’ve cleaned those shrooms, lets get started on some rice!

Here’s How you Do it:

First, cook the mushrooms. If the chanterelle is particularly large, cut them into slices. You can cook smaller ones whole. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a heavy skillet. Add 1/8th teaspoon of minced garlic and stir.

Next add the mushrooms to the pan. Let them simmer for about 5 minutes, then stir. Continue to cook until they are soft and fragrant. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

When they have cooled enough to handles, chop them.

Use one cup of the broth to deglaze the skillet.

Add the other cup of broth to a rice maker, then add the butter and mushrooms from the skillet.

Stir in 1 cup of long grain rice and some pepper (optional). Start the rice maker.

When the rice is done, place 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter on top. Allow it to melt before serving.
