I have been picking again last week-end and found a few chanterelles. It was too dry up until now and they were small and scarce, the good thing being that the flavor is very intense. I decided to make a quiche.
Clean the chanterelles without getting them wet if possible, brushing and scraping with a knife. Then chop them in fairly small pieces. You need about two cups raw. Add them to a large frying pan with 3 tbsp olive oil set on high. Also add, half a medium onion and one large peeled zuchini, both chopped finely, and a cup of roasted ham cut in very small dices. Sauté about 8 minutes, lower the heat if necessary as not to burn the onions. Cool this on a plate.
In a bowl, beat 5 eggs. Then, add a half cup of milk or cream, salt and pepper, a sprinkle of hot sauce, and 1/4 cup of either cilantro or parsley chopped fine. Stir well, add the mushroom mix, and 3/4 cup grated cheese, stir again and pour in your favorite pie crust. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until done.
Note: Chanterelles are good, other mushroom would work as well.
