- Heat a pan over high heat until it gets very hot. Add a tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle mushrooms with some flour and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until they turn golden but without releasing their juices.
- You can achieve this by letting the mushrooms sauté without mixing them often.
- Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the same pan. Add the carrots, minced onion, thyme, salt and freshly ground pepper. Sauté until they soften.
- Add the baby onions and sauté.
- As soon as the baby onions turn golden, add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
- Add the tomato paste and sauté for another minute.
- Add the wine and turn up the heat. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to get all the tasty bits stuck at the bottom.
- Boil the liquid until it reduces to about half.
- Add the stock and the mushroom mixture along with any juices that have been released. Simmer for 10 minutes. If the sauce is too thin, simmer a little longer so that it thickens to our liking. Season to taste and serve with pasta or rice and sprinkle with some finely chopped parsley.
