Directions

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms and shallot in melted butter until the mushrooms are lightly browned and soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer cooled mushroom mixture to a blender; add pine nuts, olive oil, vegetable broth, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pulse blender a few times before blending until mixture is finely ground, scraping down the sides of the pitcher with a spatula as needed; scrape into a mixing bowl. Stir Parmesan cheese through the blended mixture.

I changed this with my subs, but I do have to brag that THIS IS SUPER! I used onion instead of the shallot, pecans instead of the pine nuts, and red wine instead of the vegetable broth. It was easy to make, smells delightful, and tastes magnificent! Thanks for the recipe!

Not very pretty, but absolutely delicious. I did not change anything and we loved this recipe! It doesn't seem like enough to serve 6, but it is quite filling; we will probably get 4 or 5 servings out of it served with pasta. The leftovers are also great. I would love to top a nice hot beef sandwich with this stuff. Thanks so much for sharing, Jewels Cooks!
