Hi , everyone .
This is a welcome to Turkish food recipes in this episode .
I have a delicious spinach mushroom casserole for you with the base of potato puree .
I think it is one of the best dishes you can make with spinach and mushrooms .
The combinations go so well , very delicious with the sauce all together .
It is really worth trying .
So let's get started .
I'm gonna begin with boiling my potatoes for the puree .
I have five big potatoes .
I peeled them as you can see and cut it in cubes .
I'm gonna cook it like this in plenty of water with some salt until it is soft .
Meanwhile , we can uh make the spinach and mushroom there .
I have one big onion .
I'm gonna saute it in some olive oil about four tablespoons and I have about 300 g of mushrooms .
I cleaned them , wash them .
I'm just going to slice it .
Let's stir the onions .
They looking good a little bit more to go checking the potatoes .
It is almost ready .
It is lightly brown , my onions .
Now I can add the mushrooms and continue to saute it .
I'm using a medium high heat .
Uh Don't make it lower because , uh , otherwise mushrooms can release too much juice and my potatoes are cooked in no time .
It is very easy way to make a puree like this .
I'm just draining the water and I'm put it back to the same pot and while it is still hot , I'm going to mash it with the potato measure .
It is important to make this step while it is hot , it , it will be easier to make it .
I have to check the onions and mushrooms and stir from time to time .
They looking good .
And I'm gonna add about a two tablespoons , butter to potato mixture and continue to stir with the measure , adding some salt and about one cup .
Warm milk , mix everything well , until you get a nice sometimes I use my uh stand mixer for this uh that is a good option too .
But this time I wanted to show you how to make it with a a potato measure .
So here my uh mushrooms looking good .
They cook truly .
And there is not much juice on the pan .
Now , I can add my spinach .
I have about uh 500 g of spinach .
I cleaned them , take the big stumps out and chop , just chopping them roughly and add it to the mixture , seasoning it with some salt and slowly just try to mix it after a time , the spinach veel cook and it will be easier to stir it , adding some uh freshly ground black pepper too .
You can also add some red pepper flakes if you like and my mushroom is ready .
I have one more thing to do .
I'm gonna make a uh to mix it with the spinach and mushroom layer .
It makes it really wonderful and delicious .
Like one more level .
Then you taste it .
So simply I add about three tablespoons , olive oil .
You can make it with butter too and two tablespoons all purpose flour , just saute it until you get a nice smell and a little bit color , golden color .
Here , I change it to a s because I'm gonna add the milk now and being careful , add the uh cold milk to the mixture stirring continuously .
I ate about 1.5 cups of whole milk still continuously on a low medium heat until it thickens and don't forget to season it with some salt and not make .
So my sauce is also ready before I mix it with the spinach and mushroom mixture .
I decided to take some of the a mixture to use later because since we are only three people , uh it would be uh too much to enjoy .
So I'm gonna use it in another uh recipe maybe just simply crack some egg and make a nice dish with it .
So now I can add the sauce and mix it together after I mixed everything I tasted and decided to add some more black pepper .
It is always better to taste each uh layer , whatever you are cooking and season it more if needed .
So the second layer is ready .
I can now bring them all together .
I'm going to use this oval dish , heatproof dish .
You can use whatever you have in your hand .
Just uh make it medium size .
Of course , if you are making it to a crowd , you can double it in size and use a bigger pan .
It might seem too much work , but it really becomes delicious with all the layers together .
And if you are working in a plan , all of them together at once , when you are working on a stove already , it becomes easier to make it and it , it takes less time .
And here comes the delicious spinach , mushroom and sauce , mixture layer .
And of course , I'm gonna finish it by adding some casa cheese .
You can use mozzarella .
My oven is preheated to 180 Celsius degree .
Everything is already cooked just before the uh serving time , let's say a half hour before the uh serving time , you can put it in an oven until it has a golden crust on top .
Since it is more effective .
I use the A fan program on my oven .
If you don't have anything like that , it's OK .
Just don't worry about it and just watch how beautifully it bakes .
It looks nice .
I just turn off the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes .
It is always uh better to rest whatever you are uh cooking and then serve it .
I hope you give it a try this delicious winter dish and let me know how it turned out .
