Sautéed Mushrooms and Garlic

Published by on

I absolutely love the versatility of mushrooms. You can pair them with almost any meat dish for a perfect side, you can use them in place of the meat for a hearty vegetarian entree, and you can even turn them into a burger on the grill! 

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite simple ways to make mushrooms, which is sautéed in a little butter with a some tasty garlic, a splash of worcestershire, and a hint of thyme. It is simple, easy, and delicious. Throw it together the next time you need a quick side dish; you may just find that the mushrooms become the star of the meal. Enjoy!

I absolutely love mushrooms with thyme. Fantastic, simple combo here. This is one of those dishes best done simply so you can appreciate the natural flavors.

I never cook mushrooms anymore. After having the wild native ones in France I can't go back to regular button mushrooms. Unfortunately the wild ones are so expensive I can't afford to buy them.

You've reminded me I need to buy worcestershire sauce at the store. Thanks!

    That's a bummer! I LOVE mushrooms in any form. Worcestershire sauce is such a great ingredient, isn't it? It is so versatile and adds such a wonderful flavor to things.
