Button mushrooms (aka white mushrooms) are juicy and full of flavor! Here’s more about this variety and recipes for cooking them to perfection.


  • 16 ounces button mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (or sweet paprika)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional, or use vegan or this substitute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Clean the mushrooms. Slice off any hard parts of stems, and slice any very large mushrooms in half. Otherwise, keep them the mushrooms whole. 
  2. Mince the garlic
  3. In a sauté pan or skillet, heat the butter or olive oil over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until they are starting to brown on the bottom.
  4. Flip and cook another 3 minutes without stirring.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, add the onion powder, smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic and lemon juice and cook 1 more minute, stirring frequently. Allow to cool for a minute, then taste and add additional salt if desired.
