1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch chunks

2 cups dry white wine

1 (14 1/2-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, broken up and juice reserved

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 fresh thyme sprigs tied together with kitchen string + 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 pound oyster, chanterelle, or white mushrooms, halved or quartered if large


  1. Heat oil in medium Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add all remaining ingredients except mushrooms and thyme leaves to Dutch oven; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour.
