Simple Sauteed Mushrooms

Preparation Time:
0 mins. Cooking Time: 5 mins.

Fast and easy, sautéed mushrooms make a great side dish with any meal.

1 tbsp olive oil, vegetable oil or butter
15 mL
1/2 lb. sliced fresh Mushrooms 250 g
2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced 25 mL
1 tbsp minced fresh herbs (tarragon, basil or thyme)
15 mL
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch of salt

Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable or olive oil or butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté ½ lb (250g) sliced mushrooms for 3-5 minutes or until starting to brown. Add 2 tbsp (25 mL) minced parsley or 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh herbs (e.g. thyme, basil, or tarragon) and 1 minced clove garlic or a pinch of salt and sauté for 1 minute.

Tip: It is important to use a large pan so the mushrooms are in a single layer and will brown rather than steam in their own juices.

Variations: Substitute dried herbs using 2 tsp (10 mL) parsley and 1 tsp (5 mL) dried herbs. Seasoning salt or salt free seasonings may be added to taste.

NOTE: for 1 lb (500 g) mushrooms: use a larger pan, double the ingredients and increase the time to 5-7 minutes.
