Description

Creamy garlic mushrooms are a simple, delicious, and easy side dish. This comforting family favorite that is quick and easy to make in just 15 minutes.


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lb. brown mushrooms, halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream (or half and half cream)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes until the hot oil sizzles. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until nicely browned on all sides.
  2. Add butter, garlic and flour. Stir well for 1 minute until fragrant and well combined.
  3. Add heavy cream, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Stir well and bring the sauce to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and keep stirring until thickened to a desired consistency.
  4. Stir in extra pepper and cheese, if desired. Serve over pasta, mashed potatoes, risotto, or rice

Notes

How to clean mushrooms: When bringing your mushrooms home from the grocery store, they will probably have some dirt on them. The best way to clean them is to wipe them with a damp paper towel one at a time before rinsing them with cold water. Never soak mushrooms since they will absorb water like a sponge.

How to store: Store leftover creamy garlic mushrooms in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

How to reheat: Reheat in a skillet over medium-low heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes. If the sauce has thickened up too much in the refrigerator, then add a splash of water until desired consistency is reached.
