Sauteed Mushrooms



400g closed cup or button mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
10g finely chopped parsley

First and foremost, since there are many varieties of mushrooms, let me clarify that this very simple recipe works well with button and closed cup mushrooms, which are the easiest to find and also the cheapest. Nevertheless, they will give you a fantastic result.

This recipe is truly Italian in its concept, since it achieves a great taste using few ingredients and a very simple process; mushrooms have a very distinctive savouriness, so they do not really need much to be added: just some garlic,parsley if you like it and some salt to enhance the flavour and also to draw out the water:

  1. If necessary trim the stalks
  2. Rinse the mushrooms to remove any dirt
  3. Slice them (about 3 mm thick)
  4. In a large frying pan or skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil
  5. Sautee the garlic for 1 minute, being careful not to burn it
  6. Add the musrhrooms
  7. Add the salt and stir
  8. The mushrooms will start releasing their water (in general, the better the quality, the less water they release)
  9. Cook on high heat until all the water has evaporated
  10. Turn the heat down and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring to allow even cooking
  11. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley (optional)
