Hedgehog mushroom is one of our favorite fresh mushrooms to buy at our local farmer’s market simply because it has the most flavors. Not only the aroma reminds us of Black Forest early in the morning, the distinctive nutty taste, and the vibrant golden color will impressive your audience, even if your audience is just yourself!
Hedgehog is flavorful and aromatic; it requires nothing more than a dash of sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and a few sprinkles of parsley to garnish just before serving.
Sauté them with one or two tablespoons of butter, until mushrooms are soft, scoop them over your favorite pasta, sprinkle a few coarsely chopped parsley and serve.
Sit down, close your eyes, breath in deeply over the plate…this is what Black Forest smells like early in the morning…
OK, it can be your back yard as well.
