If you’ve read any of our Stock recipes then forgive me for repeating myself. Here we go anyway: Stock is a critical part of any home kitchen! Any home cooking you are doing will be significantly improved if you make and use your own Stock! This recipe is for a delicious and Simple Mushroom Stock

When you think of Stock the classics of Chicken, Beef and Veal Stock come to mind – of which we have listed on our Stocks page here. With good reason. They are used in so many dishes and cuisines from all over the world. However perhaps an overlooked Stock that is equally as valuable in ramping up a dish is the humble Mushroom Stock

Mushroom Stock can be used in a multitude of ways, any time you’re cooking with Mushrooms really. We love adding Mushroom stock to Sauces and Soups to really highlight the Mushroom as the star ingredient. That’s what a good Mushroom stock does – it brings out the Mushroom flavor in a dish

So, for some beautiful Mushroom dishes such as our delicious Creamy Mushroom Sauce, why not whip up a batch of Simple Mushroom Stock and store it in the freezer?

Simple Mushroom Stock Clear
Once strained you’re left with a beautiful, clear stock

The simplicity of this Stock is there is no long roasting period, then long boiling periods like other stock recipes. Our Simple Mushroom Stock is made by extracting the beautiful flavor from dried mushrooms

We recommend using Forest Mushroom Mixes of dried Mushrooms. A combination of beautiful dried Porcini, Morell, and Chanterelle Mushrooms are great to use. If you cannot get your hands on these Mushroom types, that’s ok. Any dried Mushrooms will work so whatever you have available is totally fine

Simple Mushroom Stock Recipe


  • 30 grams / 1 oz. Dried Mushroom mix (eg: Porcini, Morell, Chanterelle)
  • 2 cups of Boiling Water


  1. Place the Dried Mushroom Mix into a medium sized bowl
  2. Boil the Water then immediately, and carefully, pour the Water over the Mushrooms into the bowl
  3. While the Water is still hot, mix the Mushrooms well throughout the water. You will immediately see the Dried Mushrooms release their flavor as the water will begin to go dark
  4. Every couple of minutes or so continue to mix the Mushrooms to ensure as much flavor is extracted. After 20 minutes strain the liquid into a bowl. You’ve now got yourself some delicious Mushroom Stock!

This recipe is for a batch that will produce about 1 cup of Stock. If you want more, just double the quantities of Mushroom and Water to achieve the volume you need
