Recipe Courtesy of Ming Tsai

Canola oil
3 minced shallots
1 cup chanterelles
1 cup quartered shiitakes
1 cup morels
1/2 tablespoon fresh minced thyme
1/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon butter (optional)
2 cups fine diced pumpkin
1 teaspoon five spice
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 to 1 cup vegetable stock
4 cups vegetarian risotto
Salt and black pepper to taste
Truffle oil for garnish
1 cup shiitake chips, for garnish

In a hot saute pan coated with oil, caramelize the shallots. Season. Add the mushrooms and thyme. Saute until mushrooms are soft and check for seasoning. Deglaze with wine. Add butter and set aside. In same pan, add a little oil and saute pumpkin. Add five spice and honey. Add 1/2 cup stock and stir. Pumpkin will absorb the stock and end up >al dente=. Add more stock if needed but do not over cook it. Add back the mushrooms and the risotto. Heat thoroughly and garnish with truffle oil and shiitake chips.


1 cup thinly sliced shiitakes
Salt to taste

In a fryer at 375 degrees, fry shiitakes until brown. Drain well and salt.

Yield: 4 servings
Difficulty: Easy
