How to make garlic mushrooms

For this mushroom recipe, you only need a handful of ingredients:

Mushrooms: cremini (aka baby Bella), or white mushrooms.

Unsalted butter: unsalted butter is better so you can control the amount of salt you add to the mushrooms.

Olive oil: we add a little olive oil to melt with butter to prevent burning.

Garlic: Fresh garlic is a must for this mushroom recipe!

Sun-dried tomatoes: For a more substantial dish and a nice depth of flavor.

Herbs: Fresh parsley makes a great combo with garlic. Italian seasoning is here to round up the flavor.
Salt and pepper.

Chicken stock: or vegetable stock. – you could also use dry white wine to deglaze the delicious brown bits in the pan.



DIRECTIONS



1. To make the garlic mushrooms stir-fry: In a large pan or skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook until slightly golden on the edges (about 5 minutes), stirring from time to time.

3. Deglaze the skillet with chicken stock, and allow the sauce to reduce a little if you like.
