We hit the driving range today but we didnt hit it too well.
This big ol' pile of onion rings is destined for greater things. It is part of an invention that I am going to post tomorrow, I sure hope it comes out good.
I found some HUGE wine cap mushrooms and I didnt want to toss out the incredibly large stems so I made something out of them.
Mock scallops anyone? You heard that right, 'fake scallops' for the vegetarian in all of us.
The stems were hot seared in a dry pan to caramelize a bit then a browned butter sauce was made with the fond.
The 'scallops' were then placed on some radish with the brown butter poured all around and then a drizzle of truffle oil and some Himalayan pink salt finished them off. The flavor and texture was fantastic, this is definitely a 'keeper' and I am anxious to try this out on my veggie friends.
