Not Your Average Cream Sauce
When you think of a rich mushroom sauce, you automatically assume that the ingredient list must include a large portion heavy cream, or that it's thickened with a roux. That's not the case with this low-maintenance sauce that comes together in no time. It's thickened with the help of plant-based cream and packed with flavor thanks to umami-laden mushrooms and aromatics like garlic and shallots.
- 5 champignon mushrooms
- ½ clove garlic
- 1 shallots
- cutting board
Clean and roughly chop mushrooms. Mince the garlic and shallots.
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- wooden spoon
- sauté pan
Add oil to sauté pan over medium-high heat, then add garlic and shallots. Sauté until soft and fragrant, then add the mushrooms. Continue to cook, adding more oil if needed, until mushrooms are browned and softened.
- 75 ml vegetable broth
- 125 ml plant-based cream
Add vegetable broth and cook for another minute, then add plant-based cream. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook until slightly thickened. Enjoy!
