Bring a pot of water with some salt to a boil. Add ravioli to boiling salt water (~5 minutes).

 

Chop the mushrooms to your liking. Add cold butter to a hot pan. Add mushrooms to the pan along with shallot and thyme. Sauté on medium high for a few minutes until butter is browned and mushrooms are caramelized. Add truffle peelings and white truffle butter (if using). Grind fresh black pepper onto mushroom mixture.

 

Now add your own creamy sauce (garlic sauce if following along exactly). Drop in the cooked ravioli to the pan and coat with the mushrooms and sauce.

 

Plate your beautiful dish and finish with some Pecorino Romano cheese and a drizzle of oil.

 

Enjoy!

Tear mushrooms into pieces. Toss in marinade of choice (honey garlic soy seen here) To make the same marinade, combine equal parts soy sauce and honey.* Add salt, garlic, and ginger to your liking. 

 

Make tempura batter while mushrooms marinate. Combine flour and corn starch with baking powder and salt. Slowly add water (or beer) while whisking until all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Let the batter rest for a few minutes.

Toss mushrooms in the batter until lightly coated. Then drop into hot oil (350 degrees) until golden brown (about 30 seconds).

Remove from oil and let excess oil drain. Sprinkle with salt and lemon juice while hot. Top with chopped chives.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
