Ingredients

  • 16 oz mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 organic palm oil-free veggie bouillon cube
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme or sage leaves

Instructions

  • Heat one tablespoon olive oil and two tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Add in the mushrooms. Stir gently and let them cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Season mushrooms with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Add the wine. Let the alcohol evaporate. Add in the bouillon cube and half a cup of broth and a couple of sprigs of thyme leaves. Simmer mushrooms for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the heavy cream, one teaspoon of ground mustard, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until sauce thickens. Adjust sea salty and freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Serve sauce over chicken, steak, mashed potatoes even omelets. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use the mushrooms you like. I used baby Bella, but regular white button mushrooms will work just fine.
  • A dry white wine is best here. Sweet wines will not work as well with this recipe.
  • If you don't have a bouillon cube use ½ cup broth.
  • Lighten up the recipe by using light cream. If you need to thicken the sauce, mix 1 tsp of cornflour/cornstarch with a tablespoon of light cream. Once the cornflour is dissolved, mix in the remaining cream. The cornstarch will thicken up the sauce right up, and the calories will be significantly less.
  • Use the creamy mushroom sauce for grilled chicken and steaks, over pasta,  even grilled/steamed vegetables.
