Ingredients

  • 30 baguette slices toasted
GARNISH:
  • 2 eggs
MUSHROOM SPREAD:
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms
  • 3 cups roughly chopped white mushrooms (8 oz/250 g)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

Mushroom Spread: Soak shiitake mushrooms in 1 cup (250 mL) warm water until softened, about 1 hour. Drain, straining and reserving soaking liquid. Remove stems and chop caps finely; set aside.

In food processor, finely mince white mushrooms, scraping down side occasionally; set aside.

In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry shiitake mushrooms, shallots and garlic until shiitakes are lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

Add white mushrooms, paprika and salt ; fry, stirring, until mushrooms begin to release liquid, about 1 minute. Stir in shii-take soaking liquid, sherry and tomato paste. Increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until dry and pasty, about 14 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Transfer to bowl; let cool. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.) Mix in parsley. Spread about 2 tsp (10 mL) on each baguette slice.

Garnish: Separately mince egg yolks and whites; sprinkle white then yolk over mushroom mixture.
