Mushroom Stock

A True Food Kitchen restaurant exclusive! This mushroom stock is a pleasant and flavorful twist on your standard vegetable version. It's a tasty broth on its own, or it works exceptionally well as the base of a delicious vegetarian stew. It only has a shelf life of 3-5 days, but once you've tasted this stock, using it quickly will not be a problem!
