Potato And Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 385


3 pounds russet potatoes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons finely diced carrots
3 tablespoons finely diced celery
1 leek, white part only, well rinsed and julienned
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed, sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cups Vegetable Stock or broth


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a 6-by-9-by-2-inch earthenware or glass casserole dish.

2. Peel and wash the potatoes. Slice them into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. Toss the potatoes in a large mixing bowl with the onion, carrot, celery, leek, and garlic.

3. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the mushrooms and toss constantly for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are moist and tender. The heat should remain high but the mushrooms should not brown. Remove the mushrooms from the pan, season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

4. Arrange half of the potato mixture in the prepared dish. Season with salt and pepper. Layer half of the mushrooms over the potato mixture. Cover with the remaining potato mixture, season with salt and pepper, then top with the remaining mushrooms. Pour in the wine and broth. The liquid should come about halfway up the sides of the potatoes and mushrooms.

5. Seal the casserole very tightly with 2 or 3 layers of aluminum foil, making sure that no steam can escape during baking.

6. Bake for about 1 1/4 hours, or until the potatoes are tender and can be cut easily with a fork.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Let cool completely, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

TO REHEAT: Reheat in the microwave or in a preheated 350°F oven until heated through.
