New Recipes: MushroomsPosted on May 16, 2017
Well, I am a man of my word. I promised you tadpoles I'd teach you about that old Mushroom Log moldering in your kitchens if anyone showed me a properly-made Golden Apple Smoothie. And since several of you rose to my challenge, I got things ready in a hurry.
The first thing you’re going to need to do is get some plain old Mushrooms. I think you have plenty of them back in Hope if you don't want to wander the forest for any wild seed mushrooms. Then you need either A Kiss, A Sigh, or A Tear to make the delicious Portobello Mushrooms, Cremini Mushrooms, or Shiitake Mushrooms. This process takes the Mushroom Log and as easy as stuffing the ingredients inside the log to let it do its magic.
Once you have made yourself a little collection of fresh fungus, you can make four brand new meals. Some of these star the mushrooms; in others they will be more of a flavor accent. Both the Lentil Quinoa Salad and Mushroom Soup are a good place to start when cooking with mushrooms. They may take a few ingredients but they are fairly easy to get. The Sizzling Quackrometz is a hot dish that takes some skill to prepare, in addition to a well-stocked kitchen. But if you can get it right, it is a fairly fancy dish to show off. And speaking of fancy dishes, well, this last recipe, Stir Fried Mushrooms, only takes two ingredients. But the four leaf clover honey is a pain to not burn. I don't know if the luck in it applies to everything in the world except cooking this dish, but I can remember burning plenty attempts at this dish in my youth. I think it’s something special if you can get it properly golden without burning, and can elevate any dinner menus you have planned.
Hopefully I was able to provide a nice mix of meals here for all kinds of palates. I'm going to mull over what to teach everyone next. You’ve all been doing a good job with what I've been spouting off so I think I might be able to give you a bigger challenge next time.
