10 mins to prep

  1. Step 1

    Add the garlic to a small pot with a dash of stock over medium heat, to start sweating it down a bit. Then add all the mushrooms with the stock, and a little salt and pepper, and pop it on high heat; cook until it comes to a boil. Then turn down to a simmer and reduce the mixture til there’s about 3/4 cup liquid left, and all the mushrooms have shrunk down.

  2. Step 2

    Stir in the plant-based butter, then pour in the cream, mix it through, and turn off the heat to prevent splitting. Add the chopped tarragon, chives and parsley. Keep stirring vigorously to emulsify the mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Place the toast on a deep lipped plate, spoon over the mushrooms and pour over the extra cream mixture.
