- 1 tbsp. butter
- 2-3 shallots
- 4 cups turkey stock (or chicken stock)
- 3-4 leaves tarragon
- 8 oz. fresh cremini mushrooms, chopped (approx 4 cups) – cremini are baby portobellos
- 4 oz. fresh shitake mushrooms, chopped (approx 2 cups)
- 1 tsp. sea salt

Saute shallots in butter 2-3 minutes. Add fresh mushrooms, stock, tarragon, and sea salt (if you are using dried mushrooms remember to soak the mushrooms in water and soften before using).

Garnish with fresh chives.
