Swedish Warm Chanterelle Toast with Happy Spices Garlic Puree

  • 200gr-400gr fresh chanterelles
  • 1/4 cup diced shallots or 1 onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons Happy Spices Garlic Puree
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • fresh minced parsley and dill for garnish
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • crusty bread for toasts
  • First, remove as much dirt as you can with your fingers or a paper towel, working gently. Then, under a delicate stream of water, remove any stubborn bits of forest floor. Note: Chanterelles absorb a lot of liquid, so it is best to wash them using as little water as possible.
  • You’ll want to sweat the chanterelles to reduce their liquid. In a large pan over medium-low heat, melt half the butter or heat olive oil. 
  • Place your thoroughly cleaned chanterelles in, give them a stir, and cover. When they’ve sweat off most of their liquid, about 10-15 minutes, strain the mushrooms. 
  • Reserve the liquid for another use – you’ve now got the beginnings for a great stock or secret flavour boost. Set the mushrooms aside.
  • Toast your thin slices of bread now. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, melt the other half of the butter. 
  • Add the shallots or onion and sauté, stirring regularly, for about 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add the mushrooms, Happy Spices Garlic Puree, fresh herbs and salt and pepper, and stir. 
  • Sauté for another 5 minutes or so, until all liquid has cooked off.
  • Arrange the chanterelles on toasts, sprinkle with fresh herbs, and enjoy!
Smaklig måltig!
