For mushrooms

• 1/2 pound of Oyster mushrooms

• 1 bulb of chopped garlic

• 1 piece of sliced shallot

• 1 tablespoon of butter, unsalted

For herb goat cheese sauce

• 1/2 cup of heavy cream

• 1/4 teaspoon of chopped thyme

• 1/2 teaspoon of chopped basil

For roasted garlic

• 1 whole garlic bulb

• 1/2 cup of olive oil

• Salt


For mushrooms

Heat a large sauté pan on medium high. Start with a drizzle of oil and add in butter. Sauté mushrooms until tender for about 5 minutes, add garlic and shallots and cook for 3 more minutes. Remove from heat.

For herb goat cheese sauce

Reduce cream by half, remove from the heat and stir in goat cheese and herbs.

For roasted garlic

Take the whole garlic bulb and cut the bottom end off. Place in a shallow pan and pour half way up the pan with olive oil and season with salt.

Cover with foil and bake at 300 degrees until garlic is tender.

To plate

Ladle the goat cheese fondue down on the plate and spoon the mushrooms over the top. Serve with the whole garlic bulb and grilled sourdough bread. Enjoy!
