Mushroom Broth

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"When I am transforming a meat dish into vegetarian, there are certain shortcuts I know: I can use Quorn® or TVP for chicken, and vegetable stock for chicken stock. And, I can use organic mushrooms in place of stewing beef. But for a long time, I didn't have a replacement for beef stock. Sure, I could use vegetable stock, but it wasn't earthy enough, it was too light. So, I invented the stock below for a rich earthy stock for vegan use!"

  1. Combine water, mushrooms, celery, onions, carrots, bouquet garni, garlic, bay leaves, salt, and pepper in a large soup pot and bring to a boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce to a gentle simmer and cook until reduced by 1/2, 45 to 50 minutes.
  2. Strain stock into a jar, discard vegetables, and your stock is good to go.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use earthy mushrooms like ceps, shitakes, brown caps, etc.

Exceptional! I don’t like mushrooms and I loved this. Don’t discard the mushrooms. I used them in risotto. This recipe is fantastic. Thank you for the recipe.
