How to cook stuffed champignons - recipes with step by step photos
If you decide to cook stuffed mushrooms, the first thing you need to choose champignons. At the same time pay attention:
- on color- fresh mushrooms have a white or slightly brown color, without any dark specks on the caps;
- density- select only elastic ones;
- aroma- if the smell is unpleasant or completely absent, do not make a purchase;
since you want to make stuffed mushrooms, choose large specimens.
After you have brought a successful home purchase, the mushrooms should be cleaned. Here the opinions of the chefs diverged, some believe that it is enough just to wash them, others insist on a full cleaning.
We recommend using your own intuition. And, if the champignons are young and clean, then just wash them. And, in the case when you doubt that this will be enough - remove the film and all the places that have not liked you.Then gently separate the leg from the cap (see photo).
And you have processed the purchased mushrooms, it's time to choose a recipe according to which they will be prepared.
