Quick Side Dish Recipes – Sauteed Mushrooms

The Handsome Husband is a big fan of mushrooms.  Me, not so much.  So when I scored a bunch of free mushrooms this past week, I decided to the quickest way to prepare them would be to saute them in a bit of butter, garlic and soy sauce. I’ve had this recipe in my binder for a few years now, and according to the Handsome, these sauteed mushrooms are awesome.

I hope you like them as much as he does.


1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb fresh mushrooms, quartered
1/4 cup soy sauce {I used low sodium}
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground garlic pepper seasoning


In a large pan {I use my stir fry pan} melt the butter over medium heat, then add garlic and saute for about 30 seconds.  Add the quartered mushrooms, stir, and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.  Sprinkle with garlic pepper seasoning, add soy sauce and cook for an additional 7 minutes or until the soy sauce has been soaked up and the mushrooms are tender.

Serve as a side dish or over a bed of rice for dinner.
