Mushroom Stock

Cuisinart original

We love this as a base for a number of different Asian-style soups, but it is also a great flavor booster in risottos or even beef stews


Makes about 7 cups


2        tablespoons unsalted butter
1½     pounds mixed mushrooms
½       cup dry white wine
1        leek, trimmed, cleaned and cut into
          2-inch pieces
2       celery stalks, cut into 2-inch pieces
2       carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
1       ounce dried porcini (optional – for a
          richer tasting stock)
10     parsley sprigs
8       thyme sprigs
2       teaspoons black peppercorns
7       to 8 cups water (being sure not to go
         above the maximum fill line in the
         cooking pot)

1. Put the butter into the cooking pot of the
