Best served warm, these crostini will have your guests demanding more. You'll see that the vin santo gives the mushrooms a very special flavour, and the butter gives them a melt in the mouth texture.
- 150g (1/3 lb) white mushrooms (button, Portobello)
- A handful of dried porcini mushrooms (or fresh if you can get them)
- Parsley (or nipitella/mentuccia/wild mint if you can get it), chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
- A shot glass of vin santo (or other sweet wine)
- Bread and butter (crusty farmhouse bread is best, but baguette is fine too)
- Put the porcini to soak in a cupful of hot water for at least half an hour. Check for any sand and dirt. Chop finely.
- Clean the white mushrooms and chop them finely.
- Stir-fry in olive oil for 2 minutes, then add the garlic and herbs and cook for 1 more minute on medium (be careful not to burn the garlic).
- Add the vin santo and evaporate it off. Add the chopped porcini mushrooms and cook for a further minute or two.
- Serve warm on buttered crostini (or top the buttered crostini and warm in the oven for a few minutes).
