Garlic mushrooms on a plate and in a pan

Follow this easy garlic mushroom recipe with step by step photo instructions. 

Such a simple but tasty appetizer or snack for lunch. As with all garlic recipes, be aware that your breath will most likely smell and so you need to chew some raw parsley afterwards or just not be going out to an important interview or meeting ;-) 

All you need is butter, mushrooms,  garlic and some sprigs of parsley.

They take a minute or so to cook - so have your warmed plates ready before you start to cook.

Take 2 cloves of garlic which you will need to crush or mince.

I use this crusher which I have had for about 35 years! You can use a knife to chop and crush if you prefer. 

Garlic cloves and press

Peel the cloves - these 2 look very fat and juicy - if you like your mushrooms with lots of garlic, then you could use more or if they're only small cloves, then use three. 

Peeled garlic

Take about 2 oz (50g) 1/2 cup of butter.

You can of course use any type of spread you prefer - your usual low fat spread would normally be suitable. You will be frying with it, so be aware that some spreads don't fry too well. 

butter in a mixing bowl

ake about 4 oz (100g) 1 cup button or flat mushrooms.

Give them a wipe, but there is no need to peel them.

You could use any type you like - have a look at the supermarket to see what different kinds you can buy.

Whole mushrooms

Slice the mushroom evenly.

You just need to use an ordinary kitchen knife - it's not worth messing up a processor for the amount in this recipe.

Sliced mushrooms

Melt the butter in frying pan or saucepan over a medium heat.

It will take about 30 seconds to a minute before it is sizzling.

Melt butter in a frying pan

When it is sizzling, add the garlic cloves and stir them with a wooden spoon or spatula.

You just want to soften the garlic - be careful it doesn't burn.

It will take around a minute.

Melted butter, adding garlic to cook

When the garlic has softened, add the sliced mushroom.

Give it a good stir to coat in the garlicky butter.

Keep stirring until the mushroom is cooked through - around 1 to 2 minutes.

Some crusty bread would be good with this recipe to mop up the garlicky juices.
