GARLIC SAUTEED MUSHROOMS 

As the holidays approach you might be thinking about that menu you are putting together.

I know we are going to serve these Cucumber Hummus BitesHerb Butter Roasted Turkey, Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad, Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts and today’s Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms.   

My family loves these easy sautéed mushrooms as a side to the holidays or a weeknight meal. We also make sautéed mushrooms for steak, like this Grilled Ribeye Steak, which is a nice pairing. 

This recipe uses a few simple ingredients and they couldn’t be easier to make. You will love how fast you can get this healthy side dish on your table.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS SAUTÉED MUSHROOMS?

MUSHROOMS: This recipe uses white mushrooms but you can use any mushroom you would like. If you use larger mushrooms you might want to slice them in half or chop them.

Some other mushrooms options are portobello, cremona, button or porcini. 

GARLIC: Other than the mushrooms, garlic is the start of the show. It adds so much flavor to this dish and pair nicely with the mushrooms. 

OLIVE OIL: You can use regular or extra virgin olive oil in this recipe. Sometimes when I am done I add an extra drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to finish the dish off. 

PARSLEY: When I am done with side dishes I like to add a sprinkling of fresh parsley to brighten the dish up. You could also use fresh thyme with these mushrooms.
