  • 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.

  • Step 1

    • 10 champignon mushrooms
    • 1 clove garlic
    • shallots
    • cutting board
    • knife

    Clean and roughly chop mushrooms. Mince the garlic and shallots.

  • Step 2

    • 2 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.

  • Step 3

    • 150 ml vegetable broth
    • 250 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!
