RECIPE: Sautéed Crimini Mushrooms

Leave a comment


  • 1 lb medium crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 tbs low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth or wate

Mediterranean Dressing

  • 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 medium cloves garlic
  • sea salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 TBS fresh rosemary
  • few drops of soy sauce


  1. Chop or press garlic and for 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.
  2. Heat 5 TBS broth or water in a covered stainless steel skillet on medium heat if using a medium size burners or on low if using a large size burner.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms as soon as liquid begins to steam and cover with a tight fitting lid, for 3 minutes. They will release liquid as they cook.
  4. Remove the lid. Since 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. “Healthy Sauté” will concentrate both the flavor and nutrition of Crimini Mushrooms.
  5. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss crimini mushrooms with the Mediterranean dressing ingredients (and other optional ingredients) while they are still hot.
