Those that are fungi aficionados know that we are in the height of morel madness! The season came earlier this year, leaving some rearranging their schedules to make time to go hunting for these highly coveted beauties. Despite several attempts, I have yet to find even one morel on my own. I have not given up, but in the meantime, I “found” these king trumpets at my local grocery market (SO much easier to hunt mushrooms in the market!).
A simple sauté in 1 Tbsp. melted butter, 2 cloves minced garlic (Roundabout Farm), ½ tsp. cracked black pepper and a splash of tamari soy sauce is all these meaty mushrooms need. (note: if foraging for unusual mushrooms is not your thing, portabella, cremini or button mushrooms would work well too!)
And a bit more delicious news: sweet Abby at Seaweed & Sassafras nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award. I have to say, her blog is one of my favs so I have to return the kudos!
