How to use up leftover dried wild mushrooms

  • Mushroom mirepoix
    Soak dried wild mushrooms in boiling water for 15 minutes, then drain and finely chop. Add to a mirepoix (finely diced onion), carrot and celery) when cooking dishes such as bolognese sauce or casseroles.
  • Quick mushroom pasta
    Soak dried wild mushrooms in boiling water for 15 minutes, then drain (reserving a cupful of the liquid) and finely chop. Heat a glug of oil in a frying pan, then fry 2 sliced garlic cloves over a low-medium heat for 3-4 minutes, adding the mushrooms for the last minute. Toss with cooked spaghetti and the reserved mushroom liquid and 1 tbsp Crème fraîche. Serve with a squeeze lemon, chopped parsley and grated parmesan.
