Marinated Wild Mushrooms
These mushrooms are marinated in nama shoyu (raw soy sauce) and sesame oil overnight, then dehydrated for an intense flavor.
2 cups wild mushrooms
½ cup nama shoyu (can be found in most local health food stores)
¼ cup sesame oil
½ cup packed wild garlic
¼ cup olive oil
small handful Thai asparagus (thinner and milder than the traditional), sliced into bite-size pieces
1 ½ tbsps tamarind paste, soaked in warm water
8-12 enoki mushrooms
1 radish, very thinly sliced
4 grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
garlic cress for garnish (any cress will work)
pink Himalaya salt
1. Place mushrooms in a large bowl or container. Pour over nama shoyu and sesame oil, cover and let marinate overnight.
2. Pop mushrooms into a dehydrator for 8 hours.
3. Place wild garlic and olive oil in a food processor and puree until smooth.
4. To arrange: Smear the bottom of a serving plate with the wild garlic puree. Add dehydrated mushrooms on top and sprinkle over the asparagus, enoki mushrooms, radish, tomatoes and cress. Season with Himalaya salt to taste.
