Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 12 medium-sized mushrooms (1 1/2 inches in diameter)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 4 scallions, minced
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice
  • 5 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • Nonstick vegetable spray
  • Butter for the pan, optional

Optional toppings

  • Sour cream or yogurt
  • Flat-leaf parsley
  • Minced chives
  • Fire-Roasted Pepper Salsa (p. 49)
  • Chive blossoms

Preparation

  1. Heat skillet over medium heat, about 1 minute. Add olive oil and mushrooms and cook 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook 5 minutes more. Stir in garlic and lemon juice and remove pan from heat.
  2. Beat eggs in bowl. Whisk in flour and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in cooked mushrooms, including all juices. Add scallions, wild rice, goat cheese and black pepper, and stir until well combined.
  3. Wipe out skillet and return to medium heat. After 1 to 2 minutes, spray lightly with nonstick vegetable spray and add butter, if using.
  4. When pan is hot enough to sizzle bread crumb, using 1/2-cup measure, scoop up batter and pour into hot pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until pancakes are golden.
  5. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature with one or more of toppings suggested above.

Wine Suggestions

The two red wine grapes of Burgundy are Pinot Noir and Gamay, the latter used for Beaujolais. Wild rice, goat cheese and earthy mushrooms match well with a Beaujolais, such as Morgon, Grand Cru, Anne-Marie Perret, Domaine des Grand Cras.
