Garlicky Sauteed Mushrooms

These mushrooms brown and develop their flavor because they are cooked over high heat. From Sunset Magazine. Prep and cook times are estimates.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim stems off cleaned mushrooms and cut caps into bite-size pieces. Very small mushrooms can be left whole.
  2. Set a 10-to 12-inch frying pan over high heat.
  3. When hot, add olive oil, swirl to coat bottom, and add mushrooms.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and cook over high heat, stirring, until mushrooms stop giving off liquid and start to brown.
  5. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat; stir in parsley.
  7. Serve on a platter and season with sea salt.

Brings the best out of mushrooms!

What I really like about this recipe is it doesn't use as much oil (or butter) as others require (making it a healthier alternative), it's easy to make, and very flavorful! It's also very forgiving. I divided the ingredients in half since I only had 8 oz. of mushrooms but I forgot to do so for the salt...I had twice the salt and forgot the sea salt and it still came out great! Hubby really liked it too.

I served it with lamb steaks, spaghetti squash with marinara sauce and drizzled the sauteed mushrooms over both.

I will definitely make this again.

I would estimate a reverse of the times: 10 min. cook time (if you're doing half the recipe), 20 minutes prep. Mincing the garlic takes the longest, especially if you're doing the full recipe = 2 tsp. I substituted parsley flakes for fresh chopped and that worked out as well.

Could it miss mushrooms and garlic together, just had for breakfast (did a 1 person serve) and had it on toast with a rasher of crispy bacon on the side. Thank you cookiedog. Made for Please Review My Recipe game.
