Grilled Boletes


I was at the farmer’s market on Saturday and purchased some gorgeous  wild bolete mushrooms.  In France they call them cepes – in Italy they are porcinis – in any language they are fantastic!

We had them with smoked ribs and a home-brew…..  And here’s the recipe:


3 1/2 oz of mushrooms                                 1 Tbsp  melted butter                                        2 Tbsp  olive oil                                               1/8 tsp liquid smoke                                            1 tsp minced garlic        IMG_7281

Clean the mushrooms by brushing them gently.  It’s best not to use water – it makes them slimy.  I use the brush shown to the right.  It’s made to clean mushrooms (and it has a cool little mushroom top).

Mix everything except the mushrooms together.  Lay the halved shrooms in a single layer and pour the liquid over them.  Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours.






Put the whole mix in a foil pouch, keeping the t
op open to vent, and cook on a hot grill for about 20 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and cooked  through.


Serve hot – 2 servings


NOTE:  Never eat wild mushrooms raw.  They have a toxin that is destroyed when cooked.
