You know what ingredient doesn’t get enough attention? Mushrooms. They’re usually added into a dish as a secondary ingredient for extra flavor and texture but they are rarely ever the main focus. This recipe features solely mushrooms that are cooked in a delicious, savory sauce.
I made this dish for a dinner party at home and the mushrooms were all gone in an instant! The button mushrooms are so cute and easy to eat. They go along with almost any meal like quinoa or pasta.
This recipe doesn’t require too many ingredients. When they are all mixed together, the flavors are amazing! The wine gives the mushrooms a wonderful aroma and the herbs are subtle but make the mushrooms very tasty. Mushrooms may never be the same again…
SAUTEED BUTTON MUSHROOMS
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds small button mushrooms
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves
Wipe mushrooms clean and chop off the ends.
Heat the olive oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms, with the tops down. Do not move the mushrooms until they have caramelized on the bottom. Make sure not to toss them too soon.
When the bottoms are caramelized, add in the butter. Stir and continue to cook for about 5 minutes until browned.
Season with salt and add the garlic. Cook another 2 minutes and add the thyme, lemon juice, and white wine. Cook to evaporate the liquid.
Toss in the parsley and serve.
