  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add yellow onion and season with salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer onions to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add more olive oil and turn heat to high. Add mushrooms and saute until nicely colored, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Lower heat to medium and add thyme, sage, tomato paste and tomatoes. Stir well and cook for about 1 minute. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Stir in all-purpose flour and cooked onion. Add stock and stir until slightly thickened, about one minute. Gradually add remaining stock and cook until sauce reaches a gravy-like consistency.
  • In another skillet or pot, heat butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Once butter begins to brown, add the chanterelle mushrooms. Season with salt and black pepper and saute until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Add garlic and parsley. Stir to coat the mushrooms, about one additional minute. Add chanterelle mushrooms to the mushroom stew and stir to combine.
  • Brush the inside of baguette with olive oil and transfer to a baking sheet. Broil the bread a few inches from the heat, turning once, until toasted, about 2 minutes. Lightly rub the whole garlic clove over the toasts.
