  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 oz button mushrooms , thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic , chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 green onions , finely chopped


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add sliced mushrooms and garlic, and saute for about 3 minutes, regularly stirring with a spatula. 
  • Sprinkle the mushrooms with a little bit of salt, cover with the lid and continue cooking the mushrooms for another 2 minutes, occasionally stirring. Having the lid on will allow mushrooms to generate some moisture and not get burned. 
  • Remove the lid after mushrooms have released their moisture and saute for another 5 or so minutes on medium-high heat, stirring with a spatula. 
  • Total cooking time from the beginning to the end should be under 15 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with chopped chives or green onions.
