Servings 2 people


  • Medium saute pan with lid
  • Spatula
  • Knife
  • Chopping board


  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 400 gm Mushrooms assorted or button mushrooms
  • 2 medium Onions thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves Garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp Dry herbs thyme, oregano
  • 1/2 cup Fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper


  • In a sauté pan on medium heat add the butter, onions, garlic, stir until they are soft and translucent. Should take 2-3 mins
  • Add the mushrooms and stir around. Increase the heat and season with dry herbs, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 mins.
  • Add half the amount of fresh parsley and save the other half for later. Stir and cover the sauté pan. Cook for 2 mins.
  • Remove the lid and taste the mixture, season with salt as required. Cook over high heat for the last min until the mixture is not wet and cooked through.
  • Switch off the heat and add the remaining parsley, stir around.
  • Spoon over toast and enjoy as it is or with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.


  • While sautéing the onions and garlic I like to add a pinch of salt, this helps bring out the sweetness of the onions and the overall flavor of the dish later.
  • If your mushrooms are cooked, you don’t need to put a lid on top of the sauté pan, add the parsley and take it off the heat.
  • The cooking time and overall prep time may vary depending on the types of mushrooms being used.
