Fried mushrooms a very tasty and easy to make. They make a perfect appetizer or vegetable side dish. If you are a vegetarian, mushrooms can even be used in place of meat since they are so filling!
This fried mushrooms recipe is also healthy! If you are wondering how can “fried” be healthy – well, it’s because the mushrooms are pan fried, not deep fried. I pan-fry the mushrooms in a non-stick frying pan with a little bit of olive oil. Since mushrooms release a lot of water when cooking, you don’t need to use a lot of oil to make fried mushrooms – you can use as little as 1 tsp of oil per 1 lb of mushrooms. Mushrooms are also very nutritious and full of protein, so it makes them a perfect food choice if you are trying to lose weight.
You can use any kind of mushrooms to make fried mushrooms. On the picture above, I used baby portobello mushrooms. I have also made fried white button mushrooms and fried shiitake mushrooms – all kinds of mushrooms are very tasty when cooked this way.
