Directions

  1. . > PART-1 - cooked Mushroom mix: In a medium size pan, on MEDIUM heat, melt the butter and oil. Sauté the onion. Add the garlic about 1 minute before adding the mushrooms. Cook another 10 minutes or until reduced to about half. Remove the skillet from the heat and completely cool. Then, add the mix into the food processor.
  2. . >> PART-2: Add ALL the remaining ingredients into the processor. Pulse a few times on MEDIUM speed and then continue whirling at the same speed until a slightly coarse and mostly smooth texture becomes spreadable. Note: keep blitzing if a smoother texture is desired.
  3. . Serve right away or store in small, airtight, glass jars. Refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for up to about three months or so. It thaws well in the refrigerator.
