  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed
  Shallots/Pickling onions 6 Ounce, peeled and sliced if large (175 Gram)
  Button mushrooms 6 Ounce (175 Gram)

1. Put the chestnuts into a large saucepan and pour over the water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until soft. Drain, reserve the stock, and mash the chestnuts or grind in a blender or food processor.
