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
  • 2 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!
