Preparation time: 40+ min

Difficulty: easy


Serves 3


For ragu

Ingredients:

  • 4 leeks

  • few bay leaves

  • few sprigs of thyme

  • 600 g brown portobello mushrooms

  • a handful of porcini mushrooms

  • 1 tbs tomato paste

  • 100 ml quality red wine

  • 200 ml tomato puree

  • 2 tsp dry lovage

  • salt and pepper

  • water as needed


Chop the leeks and water-fry them together with bay leaves, thyme, and thinly sliced portobello mushroom until everything is golden brown. Add portobello mushrooms step by step, as they release water during frying. When you fry all of the portobello mushrooms and all water has evaporated, season with salt and pepper, add dry porcini mushrooms, a spoon of tomato paste, and deglaze everything with red wine. When the wine evaporates, add tomato puree, lovage, and water. Simmer until the flavors combine.
