Bronzed Mushrooms


  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp butter

  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp fresh savory

  • Optional: 1 tbsp sherry


Brush mushrooms to remove any soil that may be clinging to them. Rinse under cool water and drain. Trim stems and cut mushrooms in half. Then slice the mushroom halves.

Heat oil and butter in a saucepan. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring until they brown. Add soy sauce, savory, and sherry (if using). Stir well and cook over medium heat until mushrooms look bronzed.
