This is a lower fat, less expensive version of my Mushroom Duxelle Mushroom Duxelle - My Way!. This also freezes so well that it is worth making large quanities...especially when any of the ingredients are on sale.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and cut all vegetables (remove stems from mushrooms) except garlic, into strips about 1/2-inch size. (this may seem like alot, but it cooks down).
  2. Using large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add only onions first. Cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent. Lower heat to simmer and continue to cook for 15 minutes or until starting to get golden color.
  4. Raise heat to medium-high, add peppers and salt, Stir well into onions. Continue to cook until peppers JUST START to get soft.
  5. Add mushrooms, combining well.
  6. Add black pepper, garlic, and pepper flakes.
  7. Stir well. Lower heat to simmer. DO NOT COVER as this will poach vegetables.
  8. Continue to simmer until mushrooms give off their juices but are still firm. It is important NOT to overcook as they will cook again when reheated to be used.
  9. Remove skillet from heat. Stir.
  10. Allow to cool. Peppers and mushrooms should still have body to them.
  11. I like to bag portions in plastic sandwich bags, spread out so they are flat in bag. This makes for easy storage once they are frozen. I then place several bags into a freezer storage bag.
  12. I have kept this mix frozen for over a year without change in flavor.

This is really excellent. I used it as the main item for dinner and put it over brown rice. My own adjustments were to omit the pepper flakes and at the very end I added some water with a veggie boullion cube along with a bit of cornstarch. It came out perfect! This one is a keeper and we will be seeing ot on our plates again.

I have cooked peppers and onions and mushrooms before but never put garlic or pepper flakes in them. I will try and I am sure it will be excellent. Thanks for posting.
