DIRECTIONS

FOR THE ROASTED POTATOES:
  • Toss the potatoes in the oil, salt and pepper, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until just tender, about 20 minutes, mixing half way through.
FOR THE CREAMY MUSHROOM SAUCE:
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan over medium heat, add the onions and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms release their liquids and it's absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and thyme and cook for a minute.
  • Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
  • Add the broth and cream, add the mustard then bring to a boil and simmer to thicken, about 2-4 minutes, before mixing in the cheese and miso and removing from the heat.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, toss with the roasted potatoes and enjoy!
Option: 
  • Add 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms by soaking them in 1/2 cup boiled water for 20 minutes, chopping them and adding them to the sauce with the broth for even more mushroom flavour!
