While we’re patiently waiting for spring and tomato season, or as I prefer to call it; TOMATO AND BURRATA season, because there is no better combination of flavours ever, I have another easy burrata recipe to share. One that is as simple as slicing a tomato and tear a burrata into chunks. Well almost.
It’s a completely different flavour profile with earthy but fresh mushrooms, grassy olive oil and some lemon to brighten it all up, paired with that delicious creamy burrata. Serve with or on top of crostini for more texture.
Mushroom carpaccio with burrata and crostini, serves 2 as a starter
Inspiration from Systrarna Eisenman.
For the crostini:
1 small baguette
2 tbsp olive oil
For the carpaccio:
1 small burrata, at room temperature, torn into chunks
100 g button mushrooms, as fresh as possible
small bunch of parsley or chives, finely chopped
a drizzle of grassy olive oil
1/2 lemon, the juice
salt and pepper
Slice the baguette thinly. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Place in a 180C oven until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool.
Wash, pat dry and trim the mushrooms, then slice them as thinly as possible. Arrange on a plate or platter either underneath or on top of the burrata. Scatter with herbs, drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Serve the crostini on the side.
