As a kid, my grandma always brought us fresh mushrooms whenever she comes to visit us in the city, and my mum made Mushrooms with spinach with it. It was so good that we never have enough of it. This is how I developed my love for mushrooms.

This mushroom recipe is quite a straightforward one. It’s hard to overcook them because they have a strong internal structure. However, it can still be overcooked if we are not careful, and this will cause the mushrooms to lose moisture and become shriveled. It is, therefore, advisable to keep an eye on it during the cooking process.

All you have to do is to saute the mushrooms in a little bit of oil. Leave them to release their juice, let them simmer in the juice. The Mushrooms will shrink, become tender, and deeply browned. Add the soy sauce, oil, season with salt and pepper, and serve!

  • Remove the woody stems of the portobello and shiitake
  • The tender stems of the white button the cremini can either be trimmed and cooked together with the cap or simply cook them as is.
  • Try to slice the mushroom as equal size as possible to ensure even sauteing.
  • When the Mushroom gets inside the Oil, it will absorb the Oil and seem like it’s about to burn. Don’t fret. Just leave it to cook. It will sweat after a few minutes.
  • Adding melted butter is optional, but it does give the mushrooms an extra layer of flavor.
