Saucy Mushrooms

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Prep: 9 minutes; Cook: 20 minutesSelect a variety of wild mushrooms for an earthy, full-flavored side that pairs well with roasted meats. We chose baby portobellos and chanterelles, but just about any wild variety you find in the store will work well in this recipe. Grated lemon rind and fresh lemon juice add a bright, tangy flavor to this rustic dish.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots (about 3 medium)
  • 8 ounces whole baby portobello mushrooms
  • 8 ounces chanterelle mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
