Cooking Methods

  1. Baking: preheat oven to 400 degrees place on a parchment-lined baking pan,  add melted butter, oil toss with mushrooms with seasonings, add the garlic, wine, salt pepper to taste, and bake for 14 minutes  stirring once in between or until browned and starting to get carmelized
  2. Pan Fried: to 1 pound of mushrooms add  2 tablespoons of butter, and heat 3 teaspoon oil (or just air spray the tops with cooking spray oil for fewer calories). Saute both sides salt, pepper to taste for around 3 minutes for each side flipping once then add garlic wine if using for another 3 minutes
  3. Air Fried:  preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. Add the mushrooms to a heat-proof dish butter flavored oil sprayed dish ( or use butter), spray mushrooms with cooking spray also, add wine, seasoning your going to use,  garlic or use granulated garlic powder then air fry for 5 minutes stirring once in-between times add additional time if needed Note: if  making a large batch add 1 minute at a time or until edges start to crisp up once the mushrooms start to carmelize they're done cooking

Tips:


  1. wash mushrooms thoroughly: To clean sliced mushrooms, give them a shake in a colander to loosen any dirt, then give them a quick rinse just before you're ready to cook. Dry them off with paper towels or a clean tea towel.
  2. fats to use: olive oil, butter, bacon fat, or if on a plant-based diet use your favorite like avocado oil(you can even mix and match fats together)
  3. choose your favorite spices and herbs: garlic, salt, pepper is all I use, but you can do any combination of flavors you want IE thyme, sage, oregano, or green onions, chives, shallots or onions, (but those are more water-laden and will add more moisture to your pan), which will inhibit some of that gorgeous golden-browning we want to see on our mushrooms, dried spices to use: paprika, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, or curry powder adding after the oil's hot, before the mushrooms go in
  4. deglaze the pan: add a touch of liquid to loosen the delicious bits the bottom of the pan creates, then stir until it's all absorbed into the mushrooms
  5. choose a mushroom: shiitakes are meaty, but baby bella, button/white mushrooms, oyster mushrooms all work great
  6. use as a topping, side dish, or in recipes like omelets, meats, and seafood
  7. rinse the cauliflower well before cooking

  10. Marsala is one of my favorite secret cooking ingedients...(along with cream sherry and bourbon). Using leftover steak for another meal just makes that cut of meat more affordable when you consider you've made 2 meals from it. Very smart!

  16. A fantastic combo of flavours, Claudia. Marsala wine must have given the mushrooms some extra burst of flavour.
