How to make Vegan Creamy Mushroom Sauce
As always, I recommend checking out this step-by-step instruction first. Then you’ll find the full recipe with exact measurements in the recipe card below!
Step 1: Sauté the vegetables.
Start by heating the oil in a pan and sauté the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until they turn slightly golden brown. Then add onions and garlic and sauté for another 3 minutes. Now sprinkle with flour, add thyme and sauté for a few seconds.
Step 2: Pour in liquid and simmer.
Next, deglaze the pan with soy sauce and white wine and let it boil down briefly. Then add vegetable broth, cooking cream and mustard and season with nutritional yeast flakes, salt and pepper. Cover the pan with a lid and let the sauce simmer for 10 minutes. Finally, stir in the parsley and you’re done!
Tip: If the mushroom sauce becomes too thick, simply add a little more water, dairy-free milk or more cooking cream.
