Autumn is officially here, the evenings become darker much quicker and the air is crisp and cold. I’m already wearing my autumn jacket and soon it will be time for gloves and cap. Autumn is mushroom season and since I’ve moved to Stockholm I havn’t been out picking any as I don’t feel confident without my parents (I have a tendency to pick poisonous ones…). Therefore I’m glad that the markets and grocery stores have loads of those delicious treats. This chanterelle toast is super easy to prepare and it’s perfect for a quick dinner when you come home tired after work. Serve it with a store bought soup, some of them are really nice.
2 slices of bread
200 gram chanterelles
Maldon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
Brush away all dirt from the chanterelles. Tear them in small parts. Chop the shallots. Fry the chanterelles with the shallots in butter until cooked and a bit crispy. Salt and pepper.
Toast the bread, butter and divide the chanterelles evenly between the two slices. Serve with soup.
