  • 1 shallot finely diced
  • 16 ounces mushrooms see note, cleaned, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves minced finely
  • 1 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon thyme picked off the stem


  • Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Once hot add shallots, cook until softened, 3-5 minutes.
  • Increase heat to medium and add mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, cook for 30 seconds. Add water, balsamic vinegar and herbs and cook until syrupy, about 2 minutes.

  1. Literally any herbs that you like will work here! We loved the combination of parsley, chives and thyme, but feel free to use whatever extra herbs you have on hand.
  2. Use any type of small mushroom, like Cremini, Baby Bella or Button mushroom.
