Duxelles

This finely-chopped mixture of mushrooms, herbs and shallots is excellent mixed into this week’s risotto!

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup finely chopped shallot
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound assorted mushrooms, such as Shiitake, white button and this week’s Chanterelle, stem ends trimmed and then finely chopped
1 tablespoon freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic, cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and a ¼ teaspoon salt, and then cook, stirring, until mushrooms have softened and released their liquid, about 7-8 minutes.

2. Raise heat to medium-high; cook until liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes more. Stir in parsley, and then additional salt and pepper, to taste. Let cool completely.
