Seasonal Recipe - Mushroom Broth


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium carrot, large dice
  • 1 medium leek, halved lengthwise, rinsed, and sliced crosswise into 1-inch pieces (white and pale green parts only)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, large dice
  • 6 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 pounds medium white button mushrooms, stems trimmed and quartered
  • 8 Italian parsley sprigs
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  • 3 quarts (12 cups) water
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the carrot, leek, and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions and leeks have softened, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the mushrooms, parsley, thyme, bay leaf, and peppercorns and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms start to release some moisture, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the vegetables are completely soft and the stock has a pronounced mushroom flavor, about 1 hour.
  4. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine-mesh strainer set over a large heatproof container or saucepan; discard the contents of the strainer. Stir in the salt. If not using immediately, let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
