7-Minute Healthy Sautéed Crimini Mushrooms Print Email

1 lb medium crimini mushrooms, sliced
3 TBS low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
Mediterranean Dressing
3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
2 medium cloves garlic
sea salt and pepper to taste
2 TBS fresh rosemary
few drops of tamari soy sauce
Serve with sautéed onions, green peas, or almost any of your favorite vegetables.

Chop or press garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.

Heat 3 TBS broth over medium heat in a stainless steel skillet.

When broth begins to steam, add the sliced mushrooms and sauté for 3 minutes. They will release liquid as they cook. As crimini mushrooms are not as watery as other button mushrooms, it is best to stir constantly for the last 4 minutes. The liquid will evaporate, and the mushrooms will become golden brown but not burned.

Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss crimini mushrooms with the Mediterranean dressing ingredients(and any of the optional ingredients you would like to add) while they are still hot. The dressing does not need to be made separately.
