Porcini Mushroom Relish

Porcini Mushroom Relish

We used this simple relish on a roast beef sandwich, but it would work as a condiment on a wide variety of meat or vegetable dishes. It’s packed with umami and herby/tangy flavors.


½ ounce Dried Porcini Mushrooms, (I used a mix of dried mushrooms)
2 teaspoons Onion, finely minced
2 teaspoons Brined Capers, rinsed, drained & chopped
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
½ teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Fresh Tarragon, finely sliced

Rinse dried mushrooms thoroughly in warm water. Rehydrate the porcinis in hot water. Drain off the water, and let mushrooms dry on a plate lined with paper towels (pat away any additional moisture with a paper towel) and finely mince the mushrooms.

Stir in the onion, mustard, salt, olive oil, tarragon and brined capers.

Melissa notes – the original recipe did not mention rinsing the capers after draining and it also called for 2 teaspoons salt. That was way too salty. I changed the recipe accordingly to my liking.
