Russian (?) Style Mushroom Sauce Recipe Please

Jetgirly | Sep 13, 2012 08:09 PM

While in the Baltics recently I was served pancakes with mushroom sauce, buckwheat with mushroom sauce, dumplings with mushroom sauce, etc. Frankly, I'm not sure there was much difference between the "mushroom sauce" and the "mushroom soup" that was served in hollowed-out rye bread bowls, either. Now I want mushroom sauce ALL THE TIME! I'm totally new to Russian-influenced cooking and also have very little experience cooking with mushrooms. Do you have any recommendations for a mushroom sauce recipe that might be similar to what one would get in Russia or the Baltics? It's probably pointless to mention, but I err on the side of healthy...

(After I master mushroom sauce I'm moving on to homemade kvass! I cannot believe how much I loved eating (and drinking...) all across Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, even as a vegetarian!)
