Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Creamy Mushroom Recipe

In this recipe, I use 3 types of mushrooms, namely button mushrooms, hon shimeji & maitake mushrooms. You can use 1 to 3 types of your favourite mushrooms.

In place of the dried Italian seasoning, you can use your favourite dried herbs blend, or 1-2 sprigs of fresh thyme.

Check out the ingredients and step-by-step photos on the previous page.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g cut mushrooms (I use button, maitake and hon shimeji)
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning (or any fave dried herbs, or 2 sprigs fresh thyme)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves minced garlic)
  • 60ml light thickened cream for thicker consistency, use thickened or heavy cream
  • 30ml soy milk for thicker consistency, use full cream or regular cow milk
  • 1/2 tbsp ramen paitan concentrate see note below
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • fresh chopped parsley


  1. Fry the mushrooms. Heat oil in pan, add mushrooms, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Fry until the mushrooms starts to wilt.
  2. Cook mushrooms in creamy sauce. Add cream, soy milk and ramen paitan concentrate. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for a few minutes, until the mushrooms are cooked. Add butter as a finishing touch. You may adjust the consistency and taste of the creamy sauce by adding more cream, milk and seasoning as needed. Garnish with black pepper and parsley.

Cooking Note(s):

  1. I discovered by chance that my bottle of ramen paitan concentrate for making ramen soup base makes a great seasoning for the creamy mushroom sauce. You can substitute this with chicken consomme powder, garlic salt and/or light soy sauce, to taste.
  2. As I opted for a lighter consistency due to the hot weather, I used light thickened cream and soy milk. For a thicker, heavier and creamier consistency, you can use heavy or thickened cream, regular cow’s milk or full cream milk.

  1. I would eat the whole bowl of sauce! So creamy, earthy and tasty.

  2. So many mushrooms! 真材实料.

    You must have a big freezer and fridge! I wish I could freeze more stuff but my freezer already so full with frozen shrimps, fish, meat, bread. Everytime I want to buy more (or even cook more), I have to think 100 times, wahahahha
