Creamy Garlic Mushrooms

This recipe is quick, simple and makes the perfect golden mushrooms in a dreamy creamy garlic sauce. Garlic mushrooms are so versatile and can be eaten pretty much at any point during the day. Serve on toast for a light snack, as a side dish, or make a little extra cream sauce and stir into pasta or rice for a super yummy meal.

I'll admit I only started eating mushrooms after becoming vegan, but wow was I missing out. I have grown to love them and now eat them pretty much everyday. I'm definitely a sucker for creamy sauces, particularly garlicky ones, making this dish my ultimate comfort food.

These garlic mushrooms are simple, delicious and can be ready in under 20 minutes. The recipe is also really easy to adjust based on your preferences. You like garlic? Add a little extra garlic! You like saucy mushrooms? Add extra cream! It really is that simple.

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms


Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 250g closed cup mushrooms

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 tbsp vegan butter

  • 75ml soya cream

  • Handful fresh parsley

Extras to serve:

  • Crusty bread, lightly toasted

  • Fresh Parsley

  • Black pepper

Instructions

  1. Slice the mushrooms length-ways into chunky even strips.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently cook the mushrooms for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Add the garlic and fry for another 2 minutes.

  3. Add the vegan butter and stir into the mushrooms until melted.

  4. Stir in the soya cream and heat through before adding the fresh parsley.

  5. Serve on lightly toasted bread and garnish with black pepper and more fresh parsley.

Notes

  • If you make extra, leftovers can be stored for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • Rather than using closed cup mushrooms, this recipe also works with other mushroom varieties including oyster mushrooms or baby portobello mushrooms.

  • Avoid soaking the mushrooms as this will make them go slimy during cooking.

  • You can easily adjust the amount of cream sauce by varying quantities of the vegan butter and soya cream.

  • Instead of soya cream you can also use coconut cream or vegan yoghurt.
