Using a spice grinder or food processor, blitz walnuts, sage and 1/4 tsp. salt until well-integrated but slightly chunky. Melt butter in a pan, sweat down garlic and thyme on low heat until the garlic softens.

Add mushrooms and cook until soft (about five minutes). Add chicken stock and reduce until thick and saucy. Salt to taste.

Toss with walnut-and-sage mixture, plate and garnish with fresh sage.
