A Tiny Stuffed Mushroom


…raw of course!
I was wandering among the vegetable section at the super, almost panicking as I was really late, and after having grabbed a number of vegetables, my eye fell on this lovely mushroom, whose diameter was about 12cm.
Now my gray cells gave me a preview of the mushroom filled with all sort of raw things. It was supposed to be organic, I believed them and I’ve bought it. The filling is basically a sort of a centrifugate of what I had in the fridge, but the result was good πŸ™‚

a monstrously huge mushroom (seriously, I think it was a portobello)
a bunch of red endive
a handful of dried mushrooms, soaked in water for 15 min
2 mushrooms
2 sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in water with dried mushrooms for 15 min
1 thin slice of onion
1/2 clove of garlic
1/2stalk of broccoli (but could have been avoided, it was a leftover in the fridge)
three radishes
mixed nuts and seeds crushed
extra virgin olive oil
spices (I used harissa powder, thyme, oregano)
umeboshi vinegar
basil for garnish
…but, really, you can stuff it with whatever you want or have in your fridge/larder, as long as its raw, if you want a raw dish

You put everything (except for half of the nuts … and of course the portobello to be filled) in a blender and blend. Add salt, if you want (I didn’t) and umeboshi vinegar; stuff the mushroom. Sprinkle with the remaining half of chopped nuts and, should you wish, some spices. Add a sprig of basil and … that’s it! For the record … I put half of the mushroom in the bento box for tomorrow :-).

I often use umeboshi vinegar, as it has a quite peculiar taste: as I perceive it, is something like lemon+salt. This allow me to avoid using salt at all. Beside that, those little plums have a huge healthy qualities, first of all they help digestion.

    Hi Isabella, here in UK is quite easy to find. Where do you live?

  9. isabella 28 February 2011 at 06:59

    Hi Eleonora,
    I live in mexico(but I am Italian too πŸ˜‰
    I have never heard of it and I have no idea on how to translate it in spanish to look for it. if you could tell me what kind of vinegar it is I can try…
    many things I am reading I ‘ve never heard of them before…
    I will have more questions for you all :))
    I am so excited about row food, now! I just missed a seminar on that! my bad! but next one I will go and will bring more recipes!!
    thanks a lot for advising!

    Hi Isabella,
    umeboshi vinegar comes from umeboshi plums, click here to have a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umeboshi

    The one I buy is from Clearpsing, but I doubt you find it in Mexico. It’s sort of magenta-red coloured.

    Anyway… don’t get crazy trying to find it, it’s slightly gentle than common vinegars and has many good properties, but for this recipe you might as well use white vinegar!

    oh thanks, but I am not ready yet, I am still doing some tests.. today I tried the spinach potion .. but it came out a half way between the same and your filling of the mushroom!:))) not bad, but a bit indigest!:))That’s because I like to try and put loads of stuff in without a rule… as soon as I come up with something decent I will certainly ask to join you.:))
    at the moment I just ‘spy’ and experiment your receipes.
    thanks a lot, though!;)
