When mushrooms come to mind, you think of grilling, sautéing, or even roasting them, but generally never frying. In season, morel mushrooms and spring onions are plentiful at the farmers markets. Combined together and fried these treats are great as a garnish on a baked potato or salad. But,  I make no apologies for eating them right out of the pan.

Spring Mushroom and Asparagus Ragout Recipe

A foodie friend of mine started growing her own mushrooms a few years ago, but I didn’t really pay any attention. Mushrooms seemed so complicated and scary. Besides, she also grew grapes before the rest of us, and wasn’t afraid to dive into pumpkin and strawberry patches. No gardening practice intimidates her. Then I saw home growing kits hit the shelves at my grocery store, and fresh and dried local mushrooms for sale in the farmers markets. Mushrooms are trending.

The mushroom vendor at my local market enthusiastically pitches the wonders of mushroom teas. I passed on the tea but brought home a carton of fresh Italians to play with. If you cannot find fresh local mushrooms, use a meaty variety such as portobella.
