Creamy Mushroom Stew Recipe

This mushroom stew is very quick and easy to make not to mention tasty! They key to make it interesting is to use different types of mushroom. Here I used regular closed cap, oyster mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms, however you can use any other types that you can find such as ceps or portobello mushrooms. It is important to use mushrooms that will keep their consistency when cooked and not disintegrate into nothing because there needs to be texture to the dish.

I also prefer to use non dairy cream (almond or oat creams work especially well) instead of regular cream as it makes everything lighter and you can keep it vegan and plant based in that manner. The garlic and white wine also elevate the flavours to make this a rich and silky smooth stew. Rice or potatoes make a perfect accompaniment to this dish.
