Adapted from The Sioux Chef Indigenous Kitchen Cookbook

Ingredients:


2 tbsp sunflower oil

1 lb assorted mushrooms

1 tbsp sage, chopped

½ cup shallot, chopped

½ cup vegetable or mushroom stock

½ cup dried cranberries

2 cups manoomin, cooked (1/2 cup uncooked)

1 cup roasted chestnuts, chopped

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp smoked salt

Directions:


In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, sage and onion. Cook until the mushrooms are browned, and onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the stock, manoomin and cranberries and cook until the liquid is almost evaporated. Add the roasted chestnuts.

Season with maple syrup and smoked salt to taste.
