I really enjoyed this. Roasting the mushroom quarters gave them a meaty texture that would be toothy enough for non vegetarians. The layers of flavor between the stew ingredients and the gremolata were great. Since the mushrooms were such a primary ingredient, topping my side of orzo with truffle salt added not only another layer of flavor but a highly complementary one. You could use truffle butter. Will definitely make again.
Wild Mushroom Stew with Gremolata
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
The Mushroom Stock used here also makes a great base for mushroom barley soup, savory gravy for mashed potatoes, or a braised bean dish.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 cups stew and 1 1/2 teaspoons gremolata)
