Sautéed mushrooms and cauliflower puree - Gluten free, vegetarian yummy recipe

in food •  11 months ago

Yesterday I felt like cooking a dish that I first tried when eating at Arome, one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in Bucharest.

It's super simple, with few ingredients and so delicious.

I was super delighted I've managed to sauté the mushrooms like never before. Thank God for the free videos on the Internet!

I did a quick lookup for "sautéed mushrooms with garlic" and I discovered on a Romanian blog a thorough explanation of what happens from a chemical point of view, what reactions take place so we obtain that nice color and texture on our bread or our sautéed veggies.

Anyways, I won't bother you with all the chemical aspects, although I learned that there is even a name for this process, the Maillard reaction.

And on the blog the guy also linked to a video that showed how to prepare mushrooms like a pro. I watched the video and did what she showed, except I replaced tarragon with parsley. I totally recommend you to try it, you'll be amazed by the results.

Here are my mushrooms, but the image doesn't do justice to the taste and flavors:


For the cauliflower puree all I did was to brake the cauliflower into small pieces and boil it until creamy-soft. Then drain it, add salt, pepper and a bit of butter, blend it until soft and that's it.

Here's the final result:


When you cook the mushrooms like this you can also use them for omelette or pizza. I added a few mushrooms to my gluten free pizza and it was amazing.

I hope this inspires you to try more vegetarian and gluten free dishes, because they are simply delicious.
