    5. In a separate skillet over high heat, add 1 tbsp. of oil. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry mushrooms until lightly browned, 3 minutes. Lower the heat to medium and add thyme, sage and chilli flakes. Stir-fry for 1-2 more minutes.

    7. Add 1 cup vegetable broth and stir until thickened, about 1 minute. Gradually add 1 more cup of broth and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Sauce should have gravy-like consistency, thin with additional broth if needed.
