Servings 6 servings


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 leek, sliced and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces baby Portobello mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Shiitake mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced without stems
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup Wondergrain sorghum
  • 7 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon truffle oil
  • 2 tablespoons parsley for garnish, optional
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated


  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium-large sauce pan, over medium heat. Add leek, and cook for 5 minutes, then add garlic and saute until lightly golden. Add the mushrooms, thyme, and sea salt to the skillet and sauté for 7 minutes until lightly browned. Place mushroom and leek mixture in a bowl and set aside
  • Place the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil into the saucepan, and sauté the shallots for 2- 3 minutes. Stir in wine and add the sorghum. Cook until the liquid is almost evaporated. Using a ladle, add 1 cup of vegetable broth and cook, stirring, until the sorghum has almost absorbed the liquid. Repeat this 3 more times until the sorghum has almost absorbed the liquid. Then add an additional 3 cups of broth to the mixture, and continue to stir and cook, allowing the sorghum to absorb most of the broth. This should take about 40-45 minutes. The sorghum should be tender and creamy with a slight bite.
  • Transfer the sorghum to the mushroom mixture, and combine well. Drizzle with the truffle oil and mix well. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan cheese before serving.
