Chanterelle-Mushroom sauce and Pasta

Chanterelle Pasta Sauce

Rpodyssey
Chanterelle mushroom season is upon us here on Vancouver Island. That means I am taking my travelling companions into the forest to reap this golden chanterelle bounty.
While I often dry fry Chanterelles before cooking them in vegan butter, I wanted to try something different with the motherload I picked today.
This delicious, vegan Chanterelle Mushroom Pasta was a little experiment I did that turned out to be an amazing sauce that will go with your favourite pasta. Although I used fresh chanterelle mushrooms, there is probably no reason you couldn't use dried mushrooms in this recipe instead of fresh chanterelles.
Also, if I had white wine on hand, I would have used it instead of Shiraz, and perhaps enjoyed the lovely golden colour that help to make golden chanterelle mushrooms so appealling.
