Mushrooms are delicious. Though not my favorite vegetable they rank pretty high up there and as much as I love them grilled on vegetable kebabs during the non-summer months I have to find a different way to make use of them. And so it’s a good thing my mom came up with this awesome and painfully simple mushroom saute recipe. Toss a few different kinds of mushrooms together after sauteeing them, a squeeze of garlic, a dash of red pepper flakes and voila a side dish is complete. I actually could probably eat an entire plate of this but it’s too bad mushrooms completely shrivel up after cooking and 1 pound of mushrooms doesn’t look like much anymore. For a vegan and gluten free starter or side give these mushrooms a try. Feel free to spice these up with more herbs or flavored oils – but I like mine simple, and these are just right.

      With mushrooms it’s best not to over crowd the pan and let them brown a little bit so I split them up and cook each mushroom type separately. Also sometimes you may want to cook some types less or more than others.

      Thanks so much! Simple truly is best sometimes and this mushroom dish with all the different types of mushrooms really is perfect!

      Sorry! Must have accidentally forgotten to post that in the recipe. Just 1 or 2 teaspoons should be enough. Add more if the flavor isn’t strong enough for you.
