When it comes to finding a decent side dish for a meal, we can often be left a little stuck. After all, most people like to choose something that involves potatoes. And who can blame them?

We all love that carb-overload goodness. However, if you are looking for something a little healthier, that has a meaty texture, but will give you that extra dose of vegetables we all need daily, then I have the side dish for you.

Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms

Sauteed Garlic mushrooms are simply a taste sensation. I am not sure I can describe them in any other way. Mushrooms are a great vegetable to use as a side dish, they have a meaty and substantial texture and they can work well with almost all meals.

With that in mind, here is everything that you need to know.

Why We Love This Sauteed Garlic Mushroom Recipe

  • Perfect side for a weeknight meal.
  • Quick and easy recipe for busy moms.
  • Versatile – add protein such as chicken, beef, or shrimp to make it a complete meal.

Ingredients

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley
  • A pinch of salt and black pepper

Equipment & Tools

  • Large heavy-bottomed skillet

How to make the Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms

  • First up, get yourself a large heavy-bottomed skillet and drizzle a little olive oil into it. Place it on high heat. Then once the oil has heated up add the garlic and saute for a minute. But keep an eye on it as you don’t want the garlic to burn as it can make it taste very bitter.

Notes and Tips

  • Make sure you don’t let the garlic burn when you initially saute it in the skillet. Garlic is great but when burnt it can have a bitter taste which isn’t very pleasant.
  • Try and avoid over-stirring the mushrooms. You want them to sear on all sides and have the opportunity to caramelize.

Variations

  • If you like the idea of these mushrooms then you could try them in a different way. Maybe add some cream cheese or cream once they are cooked to make an incredible meal or pasta dish.
  • These mushrooms could be the main event if you don’t want them as a side and will make an excellent veggie meal. Double up the quantities if needed and then serve with some veggie-packed rice or with mashed potato. The mushrooms have a meaty texture which makes them a great main meal.

Storage

How do I store the Garlic Mushrooms? – If you have any leftovers you plan on using in the next few days then the sauteed garlic mushrooms can be stored in the fridge for around 3 days. Make sure you place them in an airtight container.

Can I freeze the Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms? – The best advice would be to add any leftovers to a container, allow the mushrooms to cool completely, and then store them in the freezer. You can store them in the freezer for up to three months.

How can I reheat the Garlic Mushrooms? – If you want to reheat the mushrooms, either after they have been stored in the fridge or frozen then you can do this in the skillet or place them in the oven with an extra drizzle of olive oil. If they are frozen you might want to defrost them, or leave them a little longer in the oven and reheat them straight from the freezer.
