Here are a few recipes that suit Sléttusveppir well.

Steamed egg custard

2 – 3 servings.

15g dried Slettusveppir mushrooms
3 dl water
3 big sliced fresh champignon mushrooms
1 – 2 tbsp butter
a pinch of sea salt (recommended)
1 tbsp white wine
2 gently beaten eggs
few pods of snow peas or green vegetables
few sliced carrots

0,5 dl hot water
1/4 – 1/2 of a chicken consomme cube
1 tsp potato starch
2 – 3 tsp cold water

1. Soak Slettusveppir mushrooms for 10 to 20 minutes with lukewarm water in a small bowl and cover with wrapping film.
2. Add a pinch of salt to beaten eggs in another bowl. Butter will be added later so be careful not to make it too salty. Be careful to beat eggs not to make foamy.
3. Saute fresh mushrooms with butter.
4. Drain soaked Slettusveppir mushrooms in a strainer and separate mushrooms and the soaking water. Keep the soaking water aside.
5. Add soaked Slettusveppir mushrooms into sauteed mushrooms in a pan. Add salt and white wine and mix them well softly.
6. Strain well-mixed beaten eggs to make it smoother. Mix it with soaking water. Be careful to beat eggs not to make foamy.
7. Place sauteed mushrooms and Slettusveppir mushrooms and snow peas and carrots in heat-resistant containers and pour the liquid gently and cover with wrapping film.
8. Steam them in a steamer for 7 minutes. Adjust heat to keep always steaming from the lid.

While steaming you make the consommejure.

9. Put 0,5 dl of hot water in a small saucepan, add 1/4 ~ 1/2 chicken consomme cube and cook with low heat till melt it. (As much of chicken consomme cube as you feel is tasty.)
10. Put 1 tsp potato starch in a small bowl and add 2 to 3 tsp cold water and mix well.
11. Remove the small saucepan from heat and pour (10) into the pan and mix well quickly.
12. Bring it back to heat. Cook till just before boiling and remove from heat. When it’s sticky, it’s ready.

13. Remove a steamer from heat. Prick a toothpick into steamed egg custard to test. If nothing is coming with it, it’s cooked. If egg liquid is coming with it, need some more to steam. If overcooked, it will have small holes so be careful.
When it’s ready, take a wrapping film away and put some Consommejure over to serve.

800ml broth (mushroom, chicken or vegetable), more if needed

Dice the onion . Melt butter in a skillet and sauté the onions until they are translucent. Add the rice and fry lightly while stirring. Add the mushrooms, the water in which they soaked and the broth. Bring to boil, turn down the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.
Clean the asparagus and cut into thick slices, 2-3 cm. Boil in lightly salted water until tender (about 3 minutes). You can reserve a few slices and sauté them in butter to use as topping.
Add the asparagus to the rice mixture and stir well. Simmer for 15 more minutes. Add butter, cream, freshly grated black pepper and about half of the Parmesan cheese. Stir until heated through.
Add more broth if necessary. The risotto should be pourable but only just so.
