Recipe Preparation

Red pepper coulis

  • Char peppers over gas flame or in broiler until blackened all over. Seal in plastic or paper bag; let stand 15 minutes. Peel and seed peppers. Place in blender. Place garlic cloves in small dry skillet. Cover; cook over medium heat until browned and tender, shaking skillet occasionally, about 7 minutes. Cool. Peel garlic; add to blender with peppers. Add milk and honey to blender. Puree until smooth. Transfer to bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  • DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill.

Mushroom cakes

  • Melt butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add all mushrooms and sauté until browned and edges begin to crisp, stirring often, about 14 minutes. Add garlic; stir 1 minute. Transfer mixture to processor. Add eggs, Parmesan, herbs, salt, and pepper to processor. Using on/off turns, process until mushrooms are coarsely chopped. Transfer to large bowl. Mix in ½ cup panko.

  • Divide mushroom mixture into 8 equal portions (1/4 to 1/3 cup each). Form each into 3/4-inch-thick cake. Spread additional panko out on plate. Coat cakes with panko. Place on rimmed baking sheet.

  • DO AHEAD: Can be made 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.

Not only was it visually unappealing, the panko breadcrumbs were not enough to salvage the overall mushy texture. The pesto and coulis would have been fine with a different dish, but the mushroom patties were just not that tasty.leebotPortland, Oregon01/15/19
