Author: From the book "Broth & Stock" by Jenny McGruther from the Nourished Kitchen


  • 3 ⁄4 pound mixed mushrooms or mushroom stems chopped into 1⁄2-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow onion skin on and halved crosswise
  • 3 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 quarts cold water or Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1 ⁄4 cup dry white wine
  • 6 sprigs thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet. Nestle the onion halves into the mushrooms, sprinkle the smashed garlic over, and drizzle with the olive oil. Roast for 20 minutes in the heated oven.
  • Remove the sheet from the oven and drop the roasted mushrooms and onions into a heavy stockpot. Pour in the broth and wine. Slip the sprigs of thyme into the pot and then bring it all to a simmer over medium-high heat. Continue simmering, covered, for about 30 minutes.
  • Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve, then use a wide-mouthed funnel to pour it into two 1-quart jars, sealing the lids tightly. Cook with the broth right away or store it in the refrigerator for no more than 5 days. Alternatively, you can freeze the broth for upto 6 months, making sure to allow plenty of headspace if you're using glass jars.
