  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms (button, cremini, or shiitake), cleaned and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup cashew cream (blend 1 cup soaked cashews with 1 cup water until smooth)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, being careful not to brown it.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet, spreading them out to ensure even cooking. Sauté for 5-7 minutes or until the mushrooms release their moisture and begin to brown.
  3. Sprinkle fresh thyme leaves over the mushrooms, infusing the dish with the delightful aroma of this herb.
  4. Pour in the vegetable broth, allowing the mushrooms to simmer and absorb the flavors. Reduce the heat to low.
  5. Gradually stir in the cashew cream, creating a luscious and velvety sauce that coats the mushrooms.
  6. Add nutritional yeast to the mixture, enhancing the savory depth of the dish and imparting a cheesy flavor.
  7. Season the creamy mushroom sauce with salt and pepper, adjusting to your taste preferences.
  8. Allow the dish to simmer gently for an additional 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken.
  9. Once the mushrooms are tender and the sauce has reached the desired consistency, remove the skillet from heat.
  10. Garnish the Vegan Creamy Garlic & Thyme Mushrooms with fresh parsley, adding a burst of freshness and visual appeal.
