This is the first time I've sauteed mushrooms and onions without adding either soy, worcestershire sauce, or butter. These turned out really delicious. I only had button and portobellos...but they were great. I made these to go with a meatloaf, and they were a great side for this. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag game.
A wonderful recipe: loved the name - so joyous! - loved the photographs but loved the finished dish SO much more. I used a mixture of field mushrooms, swiss brown and oyster mushrooms, and basil, thyme and oregano, and a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice. And I'm looking forward to making this again with a mix of other mushrooms. We enjoyed our dancing mushrooms with a simple rice dish which ensured that those delicious juices were soaked up and enjoyed to the last drop! Thank you for sharing this scrumptious recipe, Annacia!

Earthy Goodness! Used a large handful of dried morels, porcini, portabellas, shiitake, and oyster that I rehydrate along with fresh bottom mushroom. I did add the soaking liquid and let it reduce for a more intense flavor. Used yellow onion in place of the shallot. Used a mix of all the herbs (sage,tarragon, rosemary, basil, oregano, and parsley) fresh out of the garden. Thanks!
