Salad of Porcini Two Ways

Total Time: 25 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 10 min
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
2 1/2 pound fresh whole porcini mushrooms
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 bunches arugula, washed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method:
Separate stems from the mushroom caps. Peel away any dirt from the stems being careful not to remove too much of the skin. Thinly slice the stems and reserve. With a pastry brush, dust dirt off the porcini caps. Heat a medium size saute pan, add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Saute the mushroom caps in the hot saute pan until golden brown.

In a bowl, combine the arugula with the reserved slices mushroom stems; toss with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place salad onto a plate and top with hot porcini mushroom caps.
