Thinly slice avocado and bacon into 1 cm pieces, finely shred the maitake mushrooms, and mince the garlic.
Add olive oil to the frying pan. Fry the garlic on low heat until aromatic, then toss the bacon and render the oil.
Turn up the heat to medium and fold in the maitake mushrooms. Add the avocado and toss lightly with white wine (or sake).
Cover with a lid and steam for 2 - 3 minutes.
When avocado and maitake are well cooked, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve. Adjust with more salt if necessary.
Story Behind this Recipe
I love avocados! I like the combination with maitake best, but it'll work with king oyster mushrooms or shimeji mushrooms.
A soft avocado will become creamy in an instant after adding it into the pan. You can also steam the avocado without breaking it down into a creamy state. Adjust the time and heat on the ripeness of the avocado.
