Flat mushrooms are fully mature white agaricus mushrooms. They have wide open caps and dark brown gills. They have a bold, rich flavour and are wonderful stir-fried, stuffed and barbecued.
Choose firm white agaricus mushrooms that have a dry surface and white to cream colour. Store mushrooms in a brown paper bag on the lowest shelf in the fridge. Do not wash mushrooms before storing, instead, wipe with a damp cloth or paper towel to remove loose dirt before preparing.
Serving Suggestion: Flat mushrooms make a flavourful base for pizza toppings. Remove the stems from six flat mushrooms and bake the caps for five minutes in a preheated 190 degree oven.
Meanwhile, sauté 250g diced pepperoni sausage and 500g diced bacon in a large frypan until evenly browned. Add to the frypan: one diced onion and one diced green capsicum. Cook about five minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add in 800g tomato puree, one minced garlic clove and one teaspoon each dried oregano, dried thyme and sea salt and simmer about fifteen minutes. Fill each mushroom cap with the pizza mixture and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for twenty minutes, or until cheese is melted.
