Tortino di Cereali_BLAD blog - 44 copy

Recipe & Photo by Ale Gambini –

Need an idea for today’s lunch or dinner?. Rice, barley, farro, steel cuts oats and champignon are the delicious and healty ingredients I put into this recipe. “Funghi trifolati” are Italian-style sautéed mushrooms with an intense flavor of garlic, fresh parsley and white wine. I shaped this dish into little flans with the help of a “coppapasta”, a round shaped cookie cutter mold.

Buon Appetito!
