Grilled Bolete Mushrooms

Wild Mushrooms – I love them.  My husband and I like to go out and gather them ourselves, but some years we just aren’t as successful as we’d like.  That’s when I hit the farmer’s markets!

I purchased some gorgeous  wild boletes – Boletus Edulis.  In France they call them cepes – in Italy they are porcinis – in any language they are fantastic!

We had them with smoked ribs and a home-brew…..And they were amazing!  An earthy, sweet flavor that melted in your mouth.


Here’s What you Need:

  • 4 oz of mushrooms  (about a 1/4 of a pound)
  • 1 Tbsp  melted butter
  •  2 Tbsp  olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp liquid smoke
  •  1 tsp minced garlic        IMG_7281

Here’s How you Do it:

Clean the mushrooms by brushing them gently.  It’s best not to use water – it makes them slimy.  I use the brush shown to the right.  It has soft bristles and does no damage to the shroom (and it has a cool little mushroom top).

Mix everything except the mushrooms together.  Lay the halved shrooms in a single layer and pour the liquid over them.  Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Put the whole mix in a foil pouch, keeping the top open to vent, and cook on a hot grill for about 20 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and cooked  through.

Serve hot – 2 servings

NOTE:  Never eat wild mushrooms raw.  They have a toxin that is destroyed when cooked.

      We try to go every fall. This year has been strange because all the mushrooms we collect in the fall have already come in during the summer! Thank heavens for farmer’s market!

    Hi Helen,

    What a great and simple recipe! As a vegan I really appreciate the fact that I can substitute the butter for a dairy-free option. I’m sharing this tomorrow. Thank you!

      Thanks Michelle – a really delicious alternative to butter is black truffle oil. Of course, it’s delicious in anything!! Thanks for stopping by!
