DAIRY-FREE CHAMPION CREAM
In this post I want to tell you how to prepare a DAIRY-FREE CHAMPION CREAM, the idea is to make a cream that is soft and tasty without adding milk, cream or cream cheese.
The reason, obviously, is that some people suffer from lactose intolerance or allergy to cow's milk protein (APLV), and tend to look for suitable recipes for them, that's why I like to give options for everyone.
In addition, although I do not suffer either, I usually prepare the creams of vegetables always without dairy, when you try it you will realize that it is not necessary at all and the result is lighter and easier to digest.
Cream of dairy-free mushrooms is easier to digest than a conventional cream with milk or cream.
To make this cream, you need very few ingredients, a few vegetables to make a stir-fry, mushrooms and a broth that brings flavor, to give it more consistency, I usually add a vegetable milk, this time from almonds, but it may be the one that most like it
You can also add the spices you like best, I just put a little white pepper on it, which goes very well without subtracting the smoothness of the flavor.
To control the thickness you will have to adjust the liquids, I was thick, I like it like that, taking less quantity I remain equally sated, but if you like clearer creams, add more liquid, you will see it as you cook it.
When the cream thickens, you can use it as a sauce in other dishes, just as I did the other day with the carrot cream in this steamed chicken dish with Brussels sprouts.
Remember that replacing a sauce with a vegetable cream is a strategy to make a dish lighter, more digestible and with fewer calories.
And since the combinations are endless, you can enrich your dishes a lot by making them much more attractive and appetizing.
This recipe is perfect as a first course when it's cold, it's very comforting and doesn't fill up too much. If you prepare a special menu, you can serve it as an entree, combine with many dishes, especially with meats and legumes.
This cream of mushrooms in a perfect starter on a special menu.

DAIRY-FREE CHAMPION CREAM
Preparing a cream of mushrooms without dairy is very easy, replace cow's milk with a vegetable milk, it will be just as creamy!
- 300 grams fresh mushrooms
- 1/4 cup Almond milk
- 1 cup vegetable stock or chicken stock
- 150 grams onion (1 / 2 onion)
- 100 grams leek (1 leek)
- 1/2 garlic clove
- 1/4 teaspoonful sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoonful White pepper (adjust the quantity to your liking)
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Elaboration step by step
Cut the onion and the leek into julienne and sauté with olive oil, add the garlic and a pinch of salt.
Clean the mushrooms, cut them in quarters and add them to the pot, give them a few turns. Save a couple for the final decoration of the dishes.
Add the vegetable milk, I used homemade almonds that were frozen in portions, and add the broth, let it boil for about 15 minutes over moderate heat.
Watch the amount of liquid, you can add a little more broth if you think necessary.
Add the pepper and correct the salt point.
Crush the mixture.
Cut the mushrooms you had reserved in thin slices, pass them through the pan and use them to decorate. You can also toast a little ham, it will be very nice and gives it a very rich salty point.
Serve the cream in a bowl with a dash of EVOO, rolled mushrooms and ham.
