How do you make sauteed garlic-butter mushrooms?
The first step is to choose your mushroom variety. I like using a combination of cremini, chanterelle, and oyster. First, you melt the butter over medium heat, add fresh garlic and cook for 2 minutes before you add the mushrooms, thyme, and sautee the mushrooms. Cook until they turn brown and tender and add a sprinkle of parsley.
What kind of mushrooms can I use?
You can use all edible mushrooms – cremini, oyster mushrooms, shiitake, white button, wild mushrooms, or a mix
What other combinations I can add to this dish?
There are lots of options you can add to the mix, such as garlic salt and white wine to give this side dish an extra kick.
