COMMENTS ON THE RECIPES
Mushrooms are low in calories, rich in fiber and minerals, but in our recipes, to magnify and give relief to the incomparable flavors of the mushrooms, we recommend the use of butter, whole milk, full cream (thick or liquid), olive oil, goose grease or duck grease, all of which are fat calories. These recipes are also to be enjoyed occasionally as part of a varied and balanced diet.
You always have the ability to use fat reduced ingredients. Butter certainly brings a unique taste, but it burns at 120 ° C and becomes toxic. So it is better to clarify it (without casein, butter is resistant to 220 ° C) or using a knob of fresh butter after cooking off the heat, after having the mushrooms cooked with a neutral fat, such as grape seed oil.
To clarify your butter, cut it into cubes and melt it over low heat in a saucepan, small enough to be able to clearly separate the different layers in height which will dissociate:
- Casein will froth on the surface: remove it with a spoon that you will rinse regularly,
- Once you have removed all the white surface layer, pour very gently melted butter in a bowl and use a spoon to keep the whey at the bottom of the pan.
We advise you not to add too much garlic for its power and pungency often outweigh the delicacy of the mushrooms. In our recipes, we recommend the use of our salt with forest mushrooms and herbs, which is a complete seasoning with salt, pepper, garlic, aromatic herbs (parsley, thyme, tarragon) and mushrooms (porcini, small mushrooms, horn of plenty mushrooms, morels), with only 2.5% of garlic. If you really want to put garlic in addition, blanch it to soften and add it in the middle of cooking so that it does not burn.
As for the iconic parsley (garlic and parsley), it lends itself to many mushrooms, provided, however, to have a light hand also. Salt and pepper before serving mushrooms, and preferably not during their cooking because salt makes disgorge mushrooms and pepper becomes bitter when heated.
In conclusion, we remind you of the main recommendations of the French National Health and Nutrition Programme (PNNS - www.mangerbouger.fr):
- Do regular physical activity at a rate of at least 30 minutes a day,
- Balance and vary your diet:
o Reduce the intake of sugars and fats in your diet,
o Eat 5 fruits and vegetables daily,
o Reduce your salt consumption.
