Description

Attention, mushroom lovers: here’s THE perfect sauteed mushrooms recipe! It brings out the best savory flavor with lemon and fresh herbs.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 16 ounces baby bella (aka cremini) mushrooms*
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh thyme and oregano*
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (or butter)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Clean the mushrooms, then slice them. Chop the fresh thyme and oregano.
  2. In a saute pan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often (the mushrooms will start to release their liquid at this point).
  3. Add the herbs and kosher salt and pepper and cook another 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is cooked out and the mushrooms are tender. (Taste to assess doneness.)
  4. Turn off the heat and add lemon juice and stir. Taste and add another pinch salt as necessary.

Notes

*Substitute button mushrooms if you can’t find cremini. We highly recommend using fresh herbs here for the best flavor; do not substitute dried.
