Teeny Tiny Fungi

March 4, 2011

I have no idea what these are.  I mean, yeah, I know they are mushrooms, but I don’t know what kind.  They are just some funny little mushrooms that came in my CSA box this week.  With their tiny caps and long, skinny stalks, they are unlike anything I could buy at the grocery store.

I sauteed these babies in some olive oil and butter with some thinly sliced red onion, garlic, and sliced crimini mushrooms that I already had in the fridge.  When they were just done, I tossed in a tablespoon of red wine, let it reduce, added a light sprinkling of salt, and poured the mushrooms over some little steaks I cooked on the stove top.  But you don’t have to have teeny tiny fungi- just use whatever mushrooms are available to you.

    These look so yummy! I love mushrooms, but no one else around me ever even wants to try them…. Mmm even the way they smell is yummy… Guess what I’m making tonight, even if it’s just for me!

    Amazingly, if I cook them until they are pretty soft, my three year-old gobbles them up (working around the onions).

    That was quite brave, to just go ahead with them without knowing what kind. I find some mushrooms taste so…fungus-y? I don’t know. My love affair with mushrooms is only a year or so old. And mostly, I put them in risotto or with chicken.

    I smelled these before I cooked them, and because of their pale color I didn’t think they would be too gamey.
