Servings 2


  • 4 large, thick-stemmed king trumpet mushrooms (see Notes)
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (soy-free if necessary)
  • 1 large leek, thinly sliced (white and light green parts) and thoroughly rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves (or 1 tsp dried thyme)
  • 1 tbsp brown rice flour (or other gluten-free flour)
  • ½ cup (120ml) vegan white wine
  • ½ cup (120ml) unsweetened nondairy milk (nut-free and/or soy-free if necessary)
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Rinse the mushrooms and pat them dry. Trim the caps off the mushrooms, then dice the caps into small pieces and set aside. Slice the stems into ¾-1 inch (2-2.5cm) “scallops.”
  • Melt 1 tbsp of the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Season the scallops with salt and pepper and place them in the pan, flat side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly crispy and golden on the bottom, then flip them. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the other side, until crispy and golden, then transfer them to a plate.
  • Melt the remaining butter in the pan. Add the leeks and the chopped mushroom caps and cook for about 3 minutes, until the leeks are soft. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for another minute. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the flour is fully incorporated. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the milk and cook, stirring frequently, until thick and creamy, about 4 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
  • Return the scallops to the pan and spoon the sauce over them. Heat them for a minute or two before serving. These are best eaten as soon as they are prepared.
