  • Oil of choice (we used coconut)
  • 1 medium onion halved and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic diced
  • 200- 300g mushrooms sliced (approx 3 cups) (any variety)
  • 100- 200g pre-cooked chestnuts halved
  • 200 ml milk (we used unsweetened carton coconut)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce / tamari / coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon flour / cornflour
  1. Heat or melt the oil, add the onion and cook until just starting to change colour. Add the garlic, stir through, then add the mushrooms. Cover and allow to cook through.

  2. Add the chestnuts and heat through before pouring the milk over. Move everything around in the pan - getting any bits off the bottom of the pan.

  3. Sprinkle over all the herbs - paprika, rosemary, dill, tarragon, pepper and the nutritional yeast. Mix in, then add the soy sauce. Allow to cook for a few minutes to see how thick the sauce is.

  4. Stir the flour into the pan to allow the sauce to thicken. Cook through covered for a further 5 minutes.

  5. Enjoy!
