- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup wine
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 bouquet garni: parsley stems, bay leaf, thyme, 2 tablespoons minced shallots, celery leaves or seeds, fresh fennel or 1/8 teaspoon seeds, 1 teaspoon peppercorns, 1/4 to 1 teaspoon coriander
- 1 (10-ounce) package button mushrooms
In a saucepan, combine water, wine, olive oil, lemon juice and bouquet garni. Simmer for 10 minutes. Slice mushrooms and leave small ones whole. Add mushrooms to court bouillon and simmer 8 to 10 minutes. Strain out mushrooms and reduce cooking liquid by two-thirds or until thickened. Allow mushrooms to marinate overnight in sauce.
