  1. Prepare mushrooms, peppers, and carrot — Slice the mushrooms thinly. I used a combination of mushrooms (white button, Maitake Frondosa, Forest Nameko, and Velvet Pioppini), but you can use whatever kind you prefer. Chop the peppers and carrot. Personally, I'm not a fan of eating carrots, but I love the flavor they add, so I felt I had to add them to the recipe. If you enjoy carrots feel free to use more.
  2. Melt butter — Melt the butter on medium in a medium sized saucepan
  3. Saute Veggies — Add the mushrooms, peppers and carrot to the melted butter and let sauté until ingredients soft (about 10 minutes). Don't forget to stir occasionally.
  4. Prepare paste — Add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to hot water and stir until it dissolves into the water. Add the rest of the cornstarch the same way. Finally add soy sauce to the mixture. The soy sauce gives it a little kick and gives it's deep brown color
  5. Add broth — Add broth to mushrooms and bring to a boil
  6. Add corn starch mixture — Slowly add in corn starch mixture while stirring
  7. Season — Add in seasoning to taste. Remember soy sauce is heavy in sodium so you'll want to go easy on the salt
  8. Simmer — Let mixture rise to a boil then set the burner to low and let simmer. Stir occasionally, and the sauce will thicken. Once the sauce reaches your desired thickness it is ready. (You can add more broth if the sauce thickens too quickly or create more of the corn starch mixture and add it if the sauce isn't thick enough.)

Hope you enjoy!

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
