• 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 1 lb cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
• 2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped*
• 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped*
• 1 Tbsp minced garlic
• Salt and pepper to taste

*Dried thyme and parsley can also be used, just use a simple ratio: 1 Tbsp fresh herbs to 1 tsp dried. This is because dried herbs are more concentrated in flavor compared to fresh, thus requiring less. Always feel free to add more or less to taste.


1. Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add mushrooms to the skillet, making sure to not overcrowd for even cooking. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Heat until mushrooms are golden brown, tender, and slightly crispy on the edges.

3. Stir in thyme, parsley, and garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.

Many mushroom varieties exist, so use a different kind as desired. These may include:

• Morel mushrooms
• Oyster mushrooms

• Portobello mushrooms
• Shiitake mushrooms
• White button mushrooms

Likewise feel free to mix mushrooms, including a wild blend of morel and oyster mushrooms.

Deglaze with wine.

To enrich the flavor even more, add a splash of wine when cooking.

Simply add a couple of tablespoons of dry white wine after the mushrooms are cooked. Adding wine before mushrooms are cooked can prevent them from browning. Allow to cook for two minutes, or until the wine has reduced.

Also do not be alarmed, as adding the wine will produce major steam once it hits the pan.
