 Ingredients List

  • 3 tb Extra virgin olive oil (3 to
  • -4)
  • 3 c Mixed fresh wild mushrooms
  • -(chantarelles, shiitake,
  • -crimini), cleaned and
  • -coarsely chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Green onions, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz Lowfat cream cheese
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 2 tb Nonfat sour cream
  • 2 tb Sherry
  • 1/2 c Walnuts, toasted and finely
  • -chopped
  • 1/4 c Chopped Italian parsley


1 sm Baguette
Extra virgin olive oil

Heat a heavy bottomed saute pan over medium for approximately 20-30
seconds. (The objective is to heat the pan enough before adding oil so the
vegetables won't stick). Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and tip pan to coat
the bottom. Quickly add garlic and green onions and saute for 1-2 minutes
then remove and reserve. Add remaining oil and mushrooms, shaking pan
regularly. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until mushrooms release their juices.
Remove from heat and cool.

Meanwhile, place green onions, garlic and remaining ingredients except
walnuts and parsley in the bowl of a food processor. Mix until smooth and
creamy. Stir into the cooled mushrooms, adding the walnuts and parsley as
you mix the ingredients together.

Makes approximately 4 cups.

FOR CROSTINI: Preheat oven to 375#161#F. Slice bread into 1/4 inch
thickness. Lightly brush with olive oil on one side and place oiled side up
on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over to lightly brown the
other side.

Remove and cool completely before storing. Will make enough for this picnic
plus leftovers.
Notes: This recipe lends itself well to a picnic because it can be made a
couple days ahead and can be packed easily. If you can not find any type of
wild mushroom, then use chopped portabellas or the white button mushrooms.

Serving Ideas: Serve as part of a Mediterranean Fall Picnic.
