Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
3
cups raw cashews
2
tsp red wine vinegar
pinch fine sea salt
1 1/2
lb assorted mushrooms
3
shallots, thinly sliced
2 1/2
cups mushroom broth or low-sodium vegetable broth
1
tbsp Dijon mustard
1
tbsp paprika
1/2
tsp ground black pepper
3
tbsp chopped fresh parsley or dill, for garnish
Directions
1.
lace cashews in a small bowl and cover by about 1 inch with boiling water. Let soak 30 minutes. Drain, discarding soaking liquid. In a blender, combine cashews, 1/4 cup water, vinegar and salt, and blend until smooth; add more water a tablespoon at a time as needed to make a cashew cream.
2.
Halve or quarter smaller mushrooms and thickly slice larger ones. Place mushrooms and shallots in a heavy pot and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms begin to brown; add broth a few tablespoons at a time to keep mushrooms from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Cook, adding more broth as needed, until mushrooms are browned and softened, 10 to 12 minutes.
3.
Stir in remaining broth, mustard, paprika and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer until mushrooms are very tender and sauce is thickened, about 25 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup of cashew cream. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with remaining cashew cream on the side.

Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, including riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid, which help to provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates. B vitamins also play an important role in the nervous system. Mushrooms are also known for their cancer prevention, antioxidants, benefits to the immune system, and specifically weight loss.
