  • Add mushrooms to skillet

I do not remember being a huge mushroom fan until I had my boys.  Something with my pregnancy hormones made me literally crave these vegetables and the obsession hasn’t ended!

I love mushroom pizza, mushroom sauce, sautéed mushrooms, stuffed mushrooms… I could go on and on.

What are mushrooms good for?

Mushrooms are packed full of nutrients, thankfully!  So, my obsession is beneficial I guess!

  • Immune boosting
  • Good source of fiber and protein
  • Packed with antioxidants
  • many more health benefits!

For this recipe I am using baby portabella mushrooms.  I recommend buying them whole because they will last longer that way.

I have found that pre-sliced mushrooms don’t last nearly as long so keep that in mind when you are purchasing them at the store.

These Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms can be prepared in about 5 minutes.

I cut the stems off so they can cook evenly on the skillet.  I used a cast iron skillet to prepare them but any skillet will work.

Mushrooms are a great side dish for steak.  I’ve included links to a few recipes I’d recommend trying as the main entree when serving mushrooms as a vegetable.
