Morels

ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. fresh morels, sliced
  • 1/4 cup shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 T unsalted butter
  • 2 T sweet Marsala wine
  • 2 T tamari soy sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 sprig of fresh tarragon
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 dash of hot pepper sauce
  • 2 T plain strained* yogurt

*24 hours in advance, drain yogurt in a yogurt strainer or cheesecloth to a soft cream cheese consistency.

preparation

Add morels to a large wash pan of cold water. Agitate. Drain. Repeat two more times until morels are clean. Place morels in a salad spinner and whirl dry. Saute shallots in butter in a heavy saucepan until translucent. Add morels, marsala, and tamari and cover saucepan with tight lid. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes. Remove lid and cook just until liquid evaporates. In a separate saucepan bring heavy cream to a boil and reduce to about 1/2 cup, stirring regularly, about 10 minutes. Add Tarragon sprig to hot cream for 5 minutes. Remove Tarragon sprig. Pour cream over Morels, whisk in yogurt and season to taste with white pepper and a dash of hot pepper sauce. I use Nancy’s Plain Honey Yogurt, Crystal Extra Hot red pepper sauce, San-J wheat free Tamari soy sauce, and a good quality Italian Marsala wine. This cream sauce is spectacular over grilled beef. You may want add some sea salt to intensify the flavors. Or toss a couple of tablespoons into hot chicken rice-noodle soup. This recipe is wheat free.
