I love having simple, easy to make and quick vegetable recipes. These Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms are exactly that and a perfect addition to steak or chicken!
How do you make healthy sautéed mushrooms?
Making mushrooms on the stovetop is simple and can be made quickly.
- Wash mushrooms and pat dry with a paper towel until dry
- Heat oil, butter and garlic in skillet
- Add mushrooms to skillet
- Sprinkle salt and pepper
- Cook 5-7 minutes on each side until mushrooms are tender
I do not remember being a huge mushroom fan until I had my boys. Something with my pregnancy hormones made me literally crave these vegetables and the obsession hasn’t ended!
I love mushroom pizza, mushroom sauce, sautéed mushrooms, stuffed mushrooms… I could go on and on.
What are mushrooms good for?
Mushrooms are packed full of nutrients, thankfully! So, my obsession is beneficial I guess!
- Immune boosting
- Good source of fiber and protein
- Packed with antioxidants
- many more health benefits!
For this recipe I am using baby portabella mushrooms. I recommend buying them whole because they will last longer that way. I have found that pre-sliced mushrooms don’t last nearly as long so keep that in mind when you are purchasing them at the store.
These Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms can be prepared in about 5 minutes.
I cut the stems off so they can cook evenly on the skillet. I used a cast iron skillet to prepare them but any skillet will work.
