You’ll need:
• 1 L vegetable stock
• 115g unsalted butter
• 1 banana shallot, peeled and finely chopped
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 175g portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
• 175g chestnut mushrooms, roughly chopped

Method:
1. In a medium saucepan, heat the vegetable stock over medium heat until simmering, then reduce heat to low and keep covered.
