Umbrellas (giant leprosy, Macrolepiota procepa) are a type of mushroom highly valued by the palate.
Finally we can go to the forests and pine forests in the region of Valladolid and Segovia to look for mushrooms and not return home with an empty basket.
This weekend we managed to enjoy a day of “mushroom hunting”. Not that we found much, but some came to our kitchen. Among them are some foxes and these “thin” umbrellas.
The umbrella, like all mushrooms, is fragile with a soft and delicate texture with a taste of walnut or hazelnut. It tastes grilled with a few drops of virgin olive oil and a few grains of coarse salt, but this time I wanted to “complicate” something more in the kitchen and make them in tempura.
Thanks for reading.
