Tender Buttered Mushrooms are nestled with caramelized onions and feature an almost spicy kick of garlic in this recipe. Seasoned with fresh parsley and basil, these herb-buttered mushrooms are an aromatic feast.

I may be the biggest mushroom lover in my family. But it’s a tight competition. This recipe for buttery garlic mushrooms is one of our favorites. It takes so little time to prepare, and the smell of the herbs is heavenly.

Herb Buttered Mushrooms

Mushrooms are one of my all-time favorite foods. We go through a lot of them at my house, so good added to pasta. But, this is one of my favorite ways to prepare them. It takes very little time to get these to the table.

Buttered Mushrooms with Fresh Herbs

This recipe for buttered mushrooms with fresh herbs begins with sauteing the mushrooms, garlic, and onions together. But, remember to start with a hot pan for best results. For me, this Misen pan is the perfect skillet for sauteeing.

Also, mushrooms can be a little finicky. Most people who don’t like mushrooms have experienced poorly cooked mushrooms that were squeaky, rubbery, etc.

You can avoid that result if you give them plenty of space in the pan. No more than a single layer of mushrooms, spread out for maximum airflow.

How To Season Mushrooms

Also, always add your salt and seasoning at the end with mushrooms. Salt draws out moisture, and so if you add it to mushrooms at the beginning, it can be difficult to attain a proper sear.

I’m personally a fan of cooking these with dry white wine; it seems to make the flavors that much bolder, to me. And, using such a small quantity allows it to rapidly cook out any alcohol content.

But, I’ve also made these with chicken broth and the results are also quite good. Regardless, you’re going to want to make them again.

  2. Add the broth or wine and scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the basil and parsley. Serve warm.

Mushrooms always add just a little something extra to a dish. Roasting is one of my favorite ways to prepare mushrooms. Follow this guide on how to roast mushrooms so you have extra on hand for easy meal prep.

Rice pilaf is a simple side that is easy to amp up into a main dish with the addition of vegetables or meat, like in this Vegetable Rice Pilaf. I alwasy stir in mushrooms as well when I have them on hand.
