Chanterelles with Sour Cream and Onions

Chanterelles with Sour Cream and Onions

Chanterelles cooked with sour cream and onions are perfect side for any potato dish: boiled, baked, fried, you name it; they can also be great topper for a steak.

And of course mushrooms work great with grains, so boiled rice, or barley, or buckwheat will taste great with these as well.

Chanterelles are seasonal and can be quite expensive, but if you are as lucky as I am you may find some reasonable priced ones at some point in Costco.

Use good original sour cream without any additives if you can for best taste. And make sure you soak chanterelles and wash them well off any dirt and dust before cooking.

Mushroom Curry

Quick and easy no meat mushroom curry. I could probably get away with using curry powder, but for this recipe I used actual mix of spices.

That way I could can play with spiciness and taste a bit every time I cook it.

Mushroom curry tastes great with boiled rice, or boiled barley. I even add it to salads sometimes to spice things up a bit.

It is really pretty fast recipe to cook and very tasty.

Jäger Sauce (Mushroom Hunter Sauce)

It took me couple of tries to get close enough in recreating a recipe for Jager Sauce which I tried in local German restaurant.

I must say I love how it turned out: creamy, mushroomy with a hint of wine and a little more than a hint of smoked bacon.

Traditionally, Jager Sauce is being served with schnitzels.

And I found it works great with meat roasts and fried meat, as well as with any kind of potato sides.

Raw Vegetables and Chicken Salad with Feta

This salad is more advanced version evolved from Raw Vegetable Salad with Feta.

I added few ingredients: kale, celery, zucchini, corn, olives, mushrooms and a protein source, boiled chicken, to make things a bit more interesting.

I take this salad ingredients with me and slice them up at work for a healthy lunch. It only takes few minutes to do.

By the way, if you boil chicken right before making the salad, make sure you let it cool down to room temperature first.

Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.

This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).

So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.
