Mushroom SauteCourse: DinnerCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
I love mushrooms. I am the only person in my house that does. My Italian husband doesn’t care for mushrooms or olives. So strange! We have a farmer at our local Farmer’s Market who grows mushrooms and they are delicious. The flavor is so much different then the ones you buy at the grocery store. I always get about a pound or 2 of the Shiitake and Cremini. I come home, wash and slice them. I go to my garden and pull a bunch of fresh herbs which I chop and then saute them all in salted butter. It is my lunch for the week. This also makes a delicious side dish for burgers or a nice cut of meat. Also it makes a wonderful topping for homemade pizzas.
1-1/2 pounds mix shiitake/cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 Tablespoons salted butter
Handful fresh herbs, chopped
Aleppo pepper, optional
- In a pan, melt salted butter over medium heat.
- Add the mushrooms and saute until they begin to release their liquid.
- Once they are almost done and have cooked down, add the fresh herbs and salt and pepper. I sometimes add Aleppo pepper or red pepper flakes.
- Allow to cool and then store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
