White Mushroom Appetizers
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Interesting blending of flavors, and so delicious as a first course, paired with perhaps a White Zinfandel or Chenin Blanc, etc. It is written with open ended quantities, figure about 3 small mushrooms per person.
firm tofu, cut into small chunks
Drain the tofu and cut into small cubes. Place in a bowl and pour several tablespoons of soy sauce over them, toss, and set aside about 1/2 hour or more for the tofu to absorb the flavors. Gently wash the mushrooms using a mushroom brush or paper towel. Remove stems. Spread a dollop of the mayonnaise into each cap and sprinkle with some cilantro. Fill with 2-3 cubes of the marinated tofu. Cut the green beans into small pieces and arrange over the tofu, tucking in to hold in place. Arrange caps on a microwave safe plate (a glass or ceramic devil egg plate is perfect!) Microwave, uncovered, using about 30 seconds per mushroom as a guide. (6 mushroom will take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes, etc.) Allow to cool a bit and serve.
