Funghi Trifolati

Funghi Trifolati (mushrooms with olive oil, garlic & parsley)

Trifolati is an Italian term for dishes cooked in olive oil with garlic and parsley; mushrooms, zucchini and kidneys are often prepared this way. Funghi trifolati was one of my favourite entrées in Sydney’s 1980s suburban Italian restaurants, where exotic oyster mushrooms seemed to be the funghi of choice – so use any mushrooms you like, or a mixture of them. Trifola means truffle, a synonym for the more commonly seen tartufo; I guess the sautéed mushrooms look a little like truffles … maybe. Funghi Trifolati, served hot or cold, is a great addition to a mixed antipasti; try it with a glass of Ravensworth Seven Months, a textural field blend of pinot gris, viognier, gewürztraminer and sauv blanc. It’s also lovely tossed through pasta; the chilli isn’t traditional, but I like it.

Serves 4 as a starter

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 500g button mushrooms, quartered
  • ¼ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • 2 teaspoons salt flakes
  • ¼ cup finely sliced flat-leaf parsley
  • Crusty bread, for serving
Method
  1. Place oil and garlic in a frying pan over low heat and cook for a minute or so, until it just starts to sizzle.
  2. Stir in chilli, salt and mushrooms, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they give off juices and are tender.
  3. Stir in parsley.
  4. Serve in shallow bowls with crusty bread to soak up all the juices.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
