4 months later

I can't believe that it has been 4 months since my last update! I am not even sure what to say in my defence. Instead I'll just post a new recipe and will try to update more often ;)

Here it comes:

Wild Mushroom & Potato Strudel

This is the veganized and slightly modified version of the recipe from Wish magazine.

2 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, parboiled and cut in 1/4-inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil (more for brushing phyllo)
1 cup finely diced onion
1 garlic clove, minced
3 cups sliced button mushrooms
3 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
2 tblsp white wine (you can use vegetable broth instead)
4 tblsp of fresh parsley
1 tblsp of fresh terragon
1 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of lemon garlic
3 sheets of phyllo dought

To parboil potatoes, cut them in quarters and boil for 5 minutes.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic until soft, then add button mushrooms and saute until lightly browned. Add this mixture to the parboiled potatoes.
Heat remaining olive oil in the same saute pan and cook shiitake mushrooms until golden. Add shiitakes to potato mixture. Deglaze saute pan with white wine and add to potato-mushroom mixture. Gently mix in herbs. Season with salt and pepper.

Lay one sheet of phyllo on a clean, dry surface and brush with a small amount of oil. Continue layering with two more sheets of phyllo, brushing each side with oil.

Place mushroom mixture over the lower third of the phyllo layers. Roll up the strudel, tucking in the sides to seal-in the mixture, and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Brush the outside of the strudel with small amount of oil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake strudel for 20 minutes, rotate tray and lower heat to 350 F, and bake for 20 more minutes until golden brown.
Serves 6

You can use different herbs for the recipe. Also I would recommend using 4 or 5 sheets of phyllo.
