Sauteed Mushrooms with Spinach and Garlic

I have to admit it – I am a mushroom girl. I’ll eat with eggs for breakfast, in a salad for lunch and incorporated into main courses for dinner and I am proud of it!  These sauteed mushrooms are combined with garlic and baby spinach. These sauteed mushrooms are easy to make with just a few ingredients. Serve them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

They are ready in 15 minutes and go well with just about anything else on your plate. Well maybe not dessert.  I’ve got to draw the line somewhere. I’m not THAT much of a mushroom girl – I have my limits!

Got 15 minutes? You can make these sauteed mushrooms!

Mushrooms are one of the most versatile vegetables out there. They have hardly any calories – about 4 calories in each one, and combine beautifully with other vegetables for a great side dish. There are lots of varieties of mushrooms, too.  See my tips for how to cook with mushrooms here. For today’s recipe, I chose plump white mushrooms but any type will do.There are so many types of mushrooms that you can use in recipes

The recipe could not be easier to make.  All you need are mushrooms, garlic, butter, salt and pepper and some organic baby spinach and you are good to go. I like the organic baby spinach because it is crinkled and keeps its body better than normal baby spinach.

All you need to do to make this delicious side dish is to sauté the mushrooms in a non stick frying pan with some butter until they have caramelized a bit.  Don’t crowd the pan or they will steam instead of sauteing and the lovely caramelized flavor is what we are going for.  I used a clarified butter since I am doing Whole30 right now, but regular butter with a bit of olive oil works fine too.  (Clarified butter has a higher smoke point so no extra oil is needed.)

Stir in the minced garlic and the sea salt and cracked black pepper and you are done.  It’s THAT easy!Sauteed mushrooms recipe

Easy to make and easy on the eyes, but the TASTE?  So flavorful! It’s hard to believe that you can get this much flavor with so few ingredients.

I think I might just serve these with some scrambled eggs today! Also be sure to see how I used this recipe as a base for my caramelized mushroom bacon bowl.These are the best sauteed mushrooms and great with eggs.

Dig in!

I love that this recipe fits so many diet styles. These sauteed mushrooms are Paleo, Whole30 compliant, Gluten free and Dairy free. Also works for both Vegan and Vegetarian diets~What a great looking plate of mushrooms and spinach
