  • Makes: about 2 cups

  • 1

    cup vegetable broth

  • 2

    tablespoons soy sauce

  • 8

    ounces mushrooms, any small variety, or a mixture

  • (try combining shiitakes with baby bella or crimini),

  • cleaned, stemmed, and sliced

  • 2

    tablespoons cornstarch

  • ¼

    teaspoon dried basil

  • 2

    tablespoons nutritional yeast


Combine the broth and soy sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the mushrooms and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until done to your liking. Combine the cornstarch with just enough water to dissolve in a cup or small container. When the water and soy sauce mixture is at a steady simmer, slowly whisk in the cornstarch, stirring constantly until the liquid is thickened. Remove from the heat and whisk in the basil and nutritional yeast. Use at once.
