Sauteed mushroom in garlic and olive oil
Recently we grew our own mushrooms thanks to Yash’s uncle (Here is his website – who gave us a mushroom kit. All we had to do was sprinkle some water every day to the pre- prepared kit that he had made and in 3 weeks we had these awesome mushrooms. This variety is called Milky mushrooms and tastes much better than the normal button mushrooms which I was used to buying.
Here is the recipe of the sauteed mushrooms which we cooked with these mushrooms.
Mushrooms –  about 200 gms1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter

Garlic (7-8 flakes)

Red chilli flakes

Some dried herbs like rosemary


  1. Shred the mushroom into thin strips. This gives a much better texture to the dish than cutting it with a knife…almost like the texture of chicken
  2. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter in a pan.
  3. Add finely minced garlic (7-8 flakes) and fry it. When soft, add the mushrooms and stir
  4. You need to cook this on high flame as the mushroom tends to release water
  5. Saute for 5- 10 mins till the mushroom is well coated and looks cooked. Add salt according to taste.
  6. You can garnish it with red chilli flakes and some dried herbs like rosemary. You can dribble some extra virgin olive oil too, to add to the flavor.
