(NC) - Fast and easy, sauteed mushrooms make a great side dish with any meal.
Preparation Time: 0 minutes Cooking Time: 5 minutes
- 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 1
- Pinch of salt
Heat vegetable oil, olive oil or butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 lb. of sliced fresh mushrooms and saute for 3-5 minutes or until starting to brown. Add minced parsley or minced fresh herbs (thyme, basil, or tarragon), minced clove of garlic, and a pinch of salt, saute for 1 minute. Serve hot as a topping on burgers, steak, chicken, salad or as a simple side dish.
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.
Substitute dried herbs using 2 tsp (10 mL) of Italian seasoning.
