  • 4 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 1 ½ pounds cremini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped


  • Clean your mushrooms and slice 1/4" off the stems.
  • Melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cook the mushrooms until they are browned and begin to shrink. About 5-10 minutes.

  1. Cremini mushrooms are also known as "baby bellas".
  2. You can use white button (common) mushrooms, sliced portobellos, or shiitake mushrooms instead of cremini. 
  3. If you want, you can use other herbs such as sage or oregano. For fresh herbs, use 2 tbsp. For dried herbs, use 1 tbsp.
  4. You can adjust the amount of garlic to suit your preference.
