Ingredients

Wild Mushrooms with Chestnuts and Thyme

Epicurious - four forks - 100% would make again

This rich side dish could easily stand on its own as an elegant meatless main course.

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
8 large shallots, sliced (about 2 cups)
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds assorted fresh wild mushrooms (such as stemmed shiitake, crimini, and oyster), sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
3/4 cup Madeira
1 7.25-ounce jar roasted peeled whole chestnuts, halved (about 1 1/2 cups)
3/4 cup whipping cream
Chopped fresh chives

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in large deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and sauté until tender
and golden, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and stir 30 seconds. Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter and stir until melted.


Add mushrooms; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until tender and brown, about 10 minutes. Add thyme and stir
1 minute. Add Madeira and simmer until almost evaporated, about 1 minute. Add chestnuts and whipping cream and
simmer until cream thickens and coats mushroom mixture, about 1 minute. Season generously with salt and pepper.
transfer to bowl and sprinkle with chivese.
