  • 1 pound mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parsley (chopped)
  • 1 – 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon butter (or dairy free butter)

  2. Warm up the olive oil in a large skillet. You can use non-stick, cast iron, enameled cast iron, or stainless steel.When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms, season with salt and black pepper, and stir.
  3. Saute mushrooms on medium-high heat for about 12 to 15 minutes, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes.The mushrooms will first release their juices.
  4. Keep cooking them until all liquid has gone, the pan is dry, and the mushrooms start to squeak and brown.Browning builds taste, so it’s essential you allow them to get some color.
  5. Optional step: when the mushrooms are almost done, lower the heat, add the butter or dairy-free butter and the grated garlic.Stir for one to two minutes until the butter melts, and you can smell the garlic fragrance.
  6. Turn the heat off, add finely chopped parsley, give it a final stir and serve.
  7. Arrange sauteed mushrooms on a serving platter and serve them as a side dish.

What brings out mushroom flavor?

Try balsamic vinegar, butter or olive oil, lots of fresh garlic, and some fresh herbs. Score the tops of the mushrooms to help them shed more liquid. Let the mushrooms soak in the marinade for about 10 minutes and up to 45 minutes prior to grilling on a 450° grill. Cook them for about 12 to 15 minutes and then serve.

How to make mushroom taste like meat?

Season with smoked paprika, chili powder, maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, lime juice, and tamari. Drizzle on some of your favorite barbecue sauce, and cook until crispy. Use enough oil to allow the mushroom to fry up with a few crispy ends in the mix, just like your favorite shredded pork dish.
