The goulash vegetarian I love to cook with chanterelles.

1. Clean the chanterelles and prepare them for the kitchen

The mushrooms usually come into the kitchen with many additions: sand, moss and needles are frequent companions of the wild mushrooms. There are two varieties for cleaning:

Variant 1: Clean the mushrooms carefully with a knife and a brush. This works with mushrooms that are not so dirty!

Variant 2: Wash the mushrooms quickly in a flour – lemon juice – water mixture, dry them quickly and then process them further. Please do this with very dirty mushrooms!

Very sandy and dirty mushrooms rather wash, if the mushrooms are only slightly dirty, then please brush them off lovingly with a brush. The mushrooms like that!

Recommends cook Thomas Sixt

The cleaning of mushrooms I will show you step by step in a detailed article.

Get the mushrooms ready and tap them gently. Pour in the water and mix with flour and lemon juice. Dip the mushrooms quickly and move them around in the water. I always do this with small portions, then put the mushrooms into the sieve and wash them quickly under running water. Dry the cleaned mushrooms on a kitchen towel. Click on the picture, in the article I show you all tips.

2.Prepare eggs and other ingredients

Always break the eggs into a bowl first. You can then examine the eggs better and check whether they are still fresh. In addition, the seasoning of the eggs is more controlled and the preparation is more successful.

It has proved to be a good idea to beat the eggs in a bowl before use. This way you can avoid egg shells in your food and check the freshness of the eggs.

Other ingredients

In addition to the eggs you will need some Emmental or Parmesan cheese. I have added thyme, primal salt and pepper and as a secret ingredient some smoked paprika.

It is best to prepare all the ingredients, then the preparation runs harmoniously. Also think of the warm plates please!

Tip from chef Thomas Sixt

You can prepare this egg dish in different ways: With a small pan and 2 eggs you get a nice little crescent-shaped omelette. In a large frying pan you get either a large omelette, which becomes wonderfully fluffy, or you can leave the shape round and simply serve quarters or eighths.

The small, crescent-shaped egg dish is an omelette and conjures up a touch of star cuisine on your table

Means cook Thomas Sixt

To be honest, the little crescent-shaped omelettes are my favourite! Here are my preparation steps:

  • Preheat the oven at 120°C and keep the plates warm.
  • On a baking tray with baking paper I put the freshly made omelettes warm and so I can easily serve 4-5 warm and wonderful egg dishes in 15 minutes.
  • I always drizzle some foamed butter on the eggs and mushrooms just before serving.

This tastes delicious 🙂 and looks simply gorgeous!

  • Heat a pan and let the butter foam up in it. Pour in the prepared mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes at high heat. Let the mushrooms take some colour, then the taste will be more intense! Put some mushrooms aside for decoration.
