Brazilian Mushrooms with Filled VolauVents

Brazilian Mushrooms with Filled VolauVents

Posted 2017-09-03 by finyfollow

For this recipe I have made some of my own vol- au-vents - see my recipe [link http://recipeyum.com.au/vol-au-vent-home-made-cases/ here].

I have filled these with chicken livers however if you do not like these, you could use pulled chicken, and I have served them with field mushrooms in what I believe to be, Brazilian spices.

Delicious!

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes plus 30 standing time
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
For the liver
6 vol-au-vent cases
1 tbsp butter
250 g chicken livers, chopped
½ cup onion, chopped
125 g bacon pieces
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup red capsicum
¼ cup green capsicum
1 tbsp brandy

For the mushrooms
2 large mushrooms, flat ones, trimmed
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ lime, juiced
1 tbsp olive oil
For the Brazilian spices
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp coriander, ground
¼ tsp chili flakes
Dash of allspice

Method
For the mushrooms
  • Make these first as they need "resting" for about 30 minutes.

  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters and mix with the garlic, lime juice and olive oil.

  • Add some salt and pepper, and leave to marinate for 20 minutes.


  • Combine all the spices together.

  • Toss the spices through the mushrooms, and allow to stand for a further 10 minutes.

  • Put the mushrooms on a preheated grill, or barbecue and grill.

  • Turn them around frequently, until they are a golden brown colour.

  • For the livers
  • Cook the bacon pieces for about five minutes and then add the butter and onion for a few minutes more.

  • Add the chicken livers and fry for about 4 - 5 minutes or until they are slightly browned.

  • Stir in the parsley, capsicums and brandy, and simmer for a few minutes only.


  • Put them into the vol-au-vent cases and then into the oven for about 10 minutes or until heated through. Do not overcook or they will be dry.


  • Put some extra parsley on top before serving (optional).

  • Serve with the mushrooms.
