Ingredient List: Oyster Mushroom, Shitake Mushrooms, Leeks, Celery, Olive Oil, Sage, Salt

Roughly chop the mushrooms, leeks, and celery. The amount you use is ultimately up to your personal taste, but I use about 1 part celery, 2 parts leeks, 2 parts oyster mushrooms, and 2 parts shitakes.

Sauté all the veggies in olive oil over medium heat until reduced and fragrant. You can do these in batches–I’m partial to sautéing by veggie type so I can pull a few sautéed leeks for one dish and a few tablespoons of celery for another.

Dump the cooked veggies into a blender. Add a dusting of sage and a sprinkle of sea salt. Blitz.

Adjust the texture with small additions of water or olive oil. Taste as you go.

For additional fall-forward goodness, use veggie or chicken broth instead of water and add some rosemary with your sage.

Serve over–most things. Roasted root veggies. Chicken. Rice. Go wild.
