Mushroom, Potato and Escarole Stew

Serving size: 4


* 1 lbs potatoes, a small variety like russian banana or german butterball potatoes, peeled  and sliced into 1/4” half moons 

1/4 cup italian parsley, leaves chopped 

2 tsp thyme 

1 bay leaf 

2 cloves garlic, lightly crushed 

2 cloves garlic, smashed to paste 

8 oz yellow onion, fine dice 

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 

1 lb mix of wild mushrooms, cleaned and cut into medium-sized pieces 

1-1/2 tbs cider vinegar 

1 head escarole, leaves removed from core, washed and sliced into wide strips sour cream 

Italian parsley, chopped for garnish


* Place the sliced potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to just cover the potatoes.  Add the parsley, thyme, crushed garlic cloves, bay leaf and salt. Cook very slowly at a gentle  simmer (never allow to boil) until the potatoes are tender. Remove the potatoes from the water  and reserve potato water for making the stew (it will act as the natural thickening agent).

* In a heavy bottomed saucepan, warm the extra virgin olive oil over medium-low heat and cook  the onion and smashed garlic, stirring frequently until the onions are soft and translucent. • Add the mushrooms, largest or longest cooking ones first, the smallest or most delicate ones  last. Cook until each batch is cooked through, but retain their shape and their juices have  evaporated from the pan. Season the mushroom mixture well with salt and freshly ground black  pepper.

* Add enough of the potato water to cover mushroom mixture, add cooked potatoes and bring to  a gentle simmer. Cook for 8 - 10 minutes until flavors start to meld and the the water thickens a  bit. Add the cider vinegar a tablespoon at a time to taste.

* Add the escarole and simmer for additional 2 - 5 minutes until the escarole is wilted.

* Gently ladle the stew into large bowls and top with a generous dollop of sour cream, a good  sprinkle of chopped parsley and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

Malabar Spinach with Ginger and Mushrooms

Serving size : 2


1 bunch malabar spinach, washed, dried, and chopped 

2 tbs grape-seed or other neutral frying oil 

3 cloves garlic, minced 

1 tbs ginger, peeled and minced 

4 green onions, white section only, chopped 

8 oz mushrooms, maitake, king trumpet, shiitake or similar, cleaned and thinly sliced 1 tbs rice wine 

2 tsp soy sauce 

* Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 


* Over medium-high heat, in a cast iron skillet or wok heat the oil until shimmering. Add mushrooms  and sauté without stirring until bottoms begin to brown. When browned, add rice wine, and stir.  Season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until mushrooms release some of their liquid and  are just about fully cooked, about 3 - 5 minutes. Remove mushrooms and juices into a bowl and  set aside.  

* Return skillet or wok to heat and add another tablespoon of oil. When shimmering, add garlic,  ginger, and scallion. Stir-fry for 1 minute, adjusting heat so the garlic doesn’t burn. 

* Stir in malabar spinach and add in mushrooms. Stir-fry for 3 minutes or until the leaves of the malabar spinach are soft and wilted. Add soy sauce, stir incorporate and let liquids evaporate away.
