This recipe for white wine sautéed mushrooms is brought to us by wellness coach and recipe developer Miriam Hahn. "My favorite thing about mushrooms cooked this way is how savory and buttery they taste, and how they can dress up any dinner," Hahn shares. Sauteed mushrooms are a great complement to hamburgers, fish or chicken. They are also easy to toss with freshly cooked pasta and delicious on homemade pizza. Read on to see how easy it is to whip up a batch of mouth-watering sautéed mushrooms.

Gather the ingredients for white wine sautéed mushrooms

First and foremost, we are going to need some mushrooms. Hahn says her favorite type to use in this recipe is a mix of button and cremini. "I find the cremini mushrooms are a little meatier than the white button, so blending the two adds a nice variety of texture," Hahn remarks. The other ingredients are simple: olive oil, garlic, chives, butter, salt, pepper, and white wine. Hahn says any type of white wine will do. "Using wine in the sautéing process really helps bring out the deep, savory flavors," Hahn shares.

Prep the mushrooms

Mushrooms can be very dirty, but instead of soaking them in water, which works to clean other produce items, we just want to dampen a dishtowel or paper towel and wipe them clean. Another method that works well is to get a vegetable brush wet and run it over the surface of the mushroom. We don't want waterlogged mushrooms, or they tend to boil rather than sauté. After they are wiped clean, slice them up with a sharp knife. While you are in chopping mode, you can knock out mincing the garlic and chives.

Cook the mushrooms

To start cooking the mushrooms, heat up 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. When cooking mushrooms, it's crucial to give them space; so, once the pan is hot, add in half of the mushrooms and spread them out evenly in the pan. Let them cook without stirring for 2 minutes. Then stir and cook for 2 more minutes. They will shrink in size quite a bit, allowing you to move them to the side of the pan so you have room to add the remaining oil and drop in the rest of the mushrooms. Repeat the process for cooking the other half.

Add the final ingredients and serve

Now that the mushrooms are cooked, it's time to infuse some flavor. Scoot the mushrooms to the outer edges of the pan and add in the butter. Swirl the butter around with a wooden spoon until it is melted, then add the garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly so the garlic doesn't burn. Now, raise the heat to medium-high, add the wine, and stir. Cook for 3 minutes then remove from heat. Add the chives and serve your delicious mushrooms.

There are numerous ways to enjoy sautéed mushrooms, and the simplest is to serve them as a side dish. If that's a little too mushroom-forward for you, you can use them as a burger topping, pizza topping, or mix them into a casserole. That wonderful, umami-forward flavor of mushrooms pairs well with cheese, rice, noodles, and just about any savory food.
