I’ve got a thing for mushrooms, but I really, really, really love chanterelles. They’re my fav! So I’m always super excited when I spot the first chanterelles in the stores. While I usually toss chanterelles on pizza or make a creamy chanterelle sauce over pasta or with rice, this time they went into fluffy pita pockets. Together with chopped salad and cherry tomatoes, this was the perfect way to make the best out of chanterelle season. The chanterelles are sautéed together with shallots until golden brown.

These vegan Chanterelle Pitas are the perfect lunch! You can also prepare the chanterelle mixture ahead – it’s good hot or cold. I wanted to keep the chanterelle flavor in the focus, so I refrained from adding an additional sauce to it. The crispy chopped salad and the sweet cherry tomatoes added a nice touch to it, without stealing the chanterelle’s spotlight.

Thank you Rebecca, It really is! Ohh freezing pitas is such a good idea! I haven't tried that yet. They always disappear so quickly here :D
