  1. I hate seeing an ingredients list, and then the VERY FIRST step is to use an ingredient that WAS NOT ON THE LIST.

    What cornstarch??

    Here’s an excerpt from the article:

    oil (I used olive oil, but any neutral oil will work)
    chicken stock or broth (vegetable broth or stock will also work)
    mushrooms
    garlic (freshly minced)
    almond milk (or any other type of milk)
    cheese (both Parmesan and mozzarella)
    fresh herbs (thyme)

    And the very first set of instructions:
    Whisk ingredients: Next, whisk the cornstarch and chicken stock.

    WHAT CORNSTARCH?

    1. Hi. It clearly states right above that the full measurements and ingredients are listed further down below in the recipe card. That was actually also the second step not first. I am sorry you missed it. Hope this helps

      Let me make your VERY DIFFICULT life easier (I’m employing your use of caps, which is considered yelling in the online world, FYI). Whenever you see an article like this, click on “jump to recipe”. You’ll typically see this at the top of all recipe articles. You will then go right to the recipe, see an ingredient list and instructions and won’t have to attempt to READ through UGH, SO MUCH. Take it easy, NO. This is a wonderful recipe, once you figure it out…
