Wild Mushroom Crostini

  • TOTAL TIME: 25 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8
  • FAST

Southern cooking is often very meat-focused, but chef Ford Fry likes to emphasize vegetables. For these crostini, he tops creamy ricotta with a mix of garlicky mushrooms and a handful of herbs.

  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. Extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded and caps sliced 1/4 inch thick
  4. 1/2 pound oyster mushrooms, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  5. 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  6. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  7. 1/4 cup dry white wine
  8. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  9. 1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
  10. 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
  11. Kosher salt
  12. Freshly ground pepper
  13. Four 1/2-inch-thick slices of rustic sourdough bread
  14. 1/2 pound fresh ricotta cheese (1 cup)
  15. 1/4 cup tarragon leaves
  16. 1/4 cup snipped chives
  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the shiitake and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until browned, 4 minutes. Add the oyster mushrooms and cook until softened and lightly browned, 4 minutes. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 minutes. Stir in the wine, lemon juice, thyme and the 1 tablespoon of parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the bread with olive oil and grill until toasted and charred in spots, about 1 minute per side.
  3. Spread each toast slice with 1/4 cup of the ricotta. Spoon the mushrooms on top and and sprinkle with the tarragon, chives and additional parsley. Cut the crostini in half, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
