Roasted Olive Oil Wild Mushrooms and Potatoes
2 lbs of potatoes (such as Yukon Gold), halved
3 tbs 41 Olive Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
41 Olive Truffle Salt or Himalayan Salt
2 oz pancetta, chopped
¼ lbs king trumpet mushroom, cut into chunks
¼ ibls chanterelle mushroom, cut into chunks
¼ lbs nameko mushrooms, trimmed
¼ lbs clamshell (shimeji) mushroom, trimmed
3 tbs of 41 Olive 18 Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbs of organic fresh chopped tarragon
2 cloves garlic, minced
Heat oven to 400 degrees (F). Place potatoes into a large roasting pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of Tuscan Herb Olive Oil.
Sprinkle with Truffle salt and mix to coat potatoes with salt and olive oil. Turn so the cut sides are up.
Roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. While potatoes are cooking, pour 1 teaspoon 41 Olive Tuscan Herb olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat and cook pancetta, stirring often, in the hot oil until pancetta releases some fat and looks like cooked ham, about 5 minutes. Stir in king trumpet, chanterelle, nameko, and clamshell mushrooms, adding a pinch of Truffle Salt as they cook.
Turn heat to high and cook mushrooms until most of the juices evaporate and mushrooms begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
Turn oven heat up to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Stir potatoes in the baking dish; mix mushrooms and pancetta with potatoes.
Return to oven and bake for 10 minutes; stir and continue baking until potatoes are browned, soft, and tender, about 10 more minutes.
Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Drizzle 18 Year Balsamic Vinegar over potatoes and mushrooms, sprinkle with tarragon, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil, and toss to mix.
Taste and adjust seasoning. Transfer to a serving platter.

Lemon Humus with Olive Oil
• 2/3 cup (1/4 pound) dried chickpeas, soaked overnight
• 1 1/2 teaspoons 41 Olive Himalayan salt
• Juice of 3 large Meyer lemons (yields 1/2 cup)
• 1/2 cup tahini
• 1 medium-sized clove garlic, coarsely chopped
• 1 teaspoon 41 Olive Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. Place the soaked chickpeas in a medium (2-quart) saucepan, and add enough water to cover by a few inches, along with the 2 teaspoons of 41 Olive Himalayan Salt.
2. Bring up to a boil over medium heat, then turn down to low heat and let simmer, covered, until the chickpeas are tender but not falling apart. This will take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the freshness of your dried beans. If the water gets too low due to long cooking time, simply add more boiling hot water to the pot. After one hour of cooking, taste every 15 minutes or so to check for doneness.
3. Once the chickpeas are finished cooking, drain in a colander and set aside to cool until no longer steaming hot, about 30 minutes.
4. Pour the chickpeas into a food processor and add the lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt. Process until very smooth, using a spatula to scrape down the sides of the container halfway through processing. Add 41 Olive Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil to add more base taste, if desired.
5. Transfer to a tightly covered container and store, refrigerated, for up to one week.
