Sautéed Mushrooms, rich in flavor from the fresh thyme, crushed red pepper, and lemon juice, are the perfect combination of freshness in one simple dish. Wow!!! Talk about Yummyness. These portobello mushrooms are just perfect for cooked grains like Farro or millet and even roasted chicken

Sauteed Spicy mushroom with thyme

Juicy and meaty, full of flavor, adding fresh herbs and spices to mushrooms is my favorite way to indulge in one of my favorite side dishes. This easy and spicy recipe requires no effort at all. You have mushrooms, fresh lemon juice, butter, olive oil, salt, ground black pepper, fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, and fresh thyme; make this easy no-fuss recipe for your next meal. 

The mushrooms are not carmelized because I did not want them to be. I prefer my mushrooms with a sauce because I like to dip my bread in the sauce. That, to me, is one of the best ways to enjoy a wonderful dish of fresh mushrooms.

To achieve the sauce, I usually use a smaller pan and stir constantly. This way, the mushrooms become soggy quickly in their juices. Perfect for dipping bread.

I also think that portobello mushrooms seem to release more water than any other mushrooms I have used. White button mushrooms don’t release as much water, so they might be perfect for you if you look for golden brown mushrooms. Just remember not to crowd the pan.

How to sauté mushrooms

The best way to sauté mushrooms and retain all the earthy and rich flavor is by using a mixture of butter and olive oil. The acidity from the fresh lemon juice and the fresh thyme add more deep flavor—just the right way to enjoy a plant-based dish.

To start, clean the mushrooms. I prefer to give the mushrooms a quick rinse under running water. I wouldn’t say I like using a damped cloth or paper towels to clean the mushrooms because most carry dirt.

  1. Give the musrhooms a quick rinse and dry them with paper towels.
  2. Heat a pan on the stovetop, add butter and olive oil. Mix well.
  3. Add the chopped garlic, mushrooms, sprinkle salt, crushed red pepper and ground pepper and stir to mix.
  4. Add the fresh thyme (leaves only) and stir to mix.
  5. Let the mushrooms cook for a few minutes under medium heat (do not increase the heat unless you are looking for golden brown mushrooms).
  6. Remove from the pan and served immediately.
