Shitake Mushrooms with Fennel

FigBrew February Recipe

It’s cold and wet out today, so we’re making something to help us feel better. It’s We’ll be using Shirataki Noodles, Shitake Mushrooms, Shaved Fennel, and we’re making a White Truffle Coconut Sauce in place of a traditional Alfredo Sauce. Combining the pungent flavor of the truffle oil, and the depth of FigBrew to the vegetables, brings this dish to a new level of warmth and comfort. It is divine!

 

Ingredients:

1 Package- Shirataki Noodles. (I used fettuccine style noodles for this dish)

1 Small Container- Shitake Mushrooms, sliced.

1 Small Fennel Bulb- shaved. (You can use as much or as little as you desire)

1 Can- Coconut Cream.

White Truffle Oil

1 Tbsp- FigBrew

Kosher Salt to season


Directions:

This is one of those recipes you’d make on a cold, blustery day. Maybe that’s why I made it today. At any rate, all these items can be found at your local grocery market. If by chance you can’t find them, they are certainly available online.

Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat. While your oil is heating, make your white truffle coconut sauce. Open the coconut cream and spoon out all the solid white cream, but don’t throw away the liquid just yet. You’ll need that to thin out your sauce. One spoon at a time, add the liquid to the solid cream and whisk, until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Then whisk in one teaspoon of the truffle oil, as well as some salt. The truffle oil takes away most of the coconut flavor, for those who aren’t fans of it.

Combine mushrooms, fennel and 1 tablespoon of FigBrew in pan and sauté until the mushrooms have released their moisture, and you begin to see a bit of char on your vegetables. Take your vegetables off the heat and set aside.

Finally, the noodles! Take these out of the package and drain any extra fluid. These are now ready to put in the pan of vegetables and go back onto the heat. Using a large spoon, scoop some of the coconut sauce into the pan and give it all a good toss. Make sure everything is covered, then give it a quick taste to make sure it’s where you want it. At this point you’re ready to plate it up and relax into your favorite chair with a glass of wine next to the fire.

Bon Appetit!
