At Tilth, Maria Hines smokes the mushrooms for her vegetarian ragout (stew). We like the earthy flavor of plain mushrooms just as much. Prep and Cook Time: 3 hours, including soaking time. Notes: You can make the recipe through step 2 a day ahead. Cover beans and chill in the cooking liquid. Before proceeding with step 3, drain beans, reserving liquid.
