Garlic, Thyme & Rosemary Sauteed Mushrooms

Printable Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves 2-4 (depends on how much you like mushrooms)

8oz/225g fresh cremini mushrooms, cut in half or quarters, depending on their size
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1.  Heat the oil and melt the butter together in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat.

2.  Add the mushrooms and toss with the butter and oil.  Cook until the mushrooms start to golden (2-3 minutes).  Add the herbs and garlic and toss.  Continue to cook for another 2 minutes or until the mushrooms are golden and fragrant.  You might need to add additional butter at this stage.  The pan should not be too dry.

3.  Add the balsamic vinegar, toss to be absorbed and serve as a side.   This time served with Around the World Spiced Flank Steak and microwave "roasted" sweet potatoes for a quick and delicious meal.
