Mushrooms as a vegetable side dish ideas?

Im in charge of bringing a few vegetable sides for dinner in about 6 hours.
I like doing things a little different instead of bringing the same thing every event.

I already made a sauteed artichoke heart- grape tomato dish ( with garlic and parmesan cheese)

but I want to make something with mushrooms too ( not stuffed) but sauteed or something of that sort.

anyone have any ideas or recipes ??

thanks in advance

We tried this recipe awhile back and really like it:
Cooks.com - Recipe - Sauteed Green Beans With Mushrooms
When we made it, we used walnuts not pine nuts, it was definitely a hit with the family.

garlic mushrooms or marinated mushrooms. I don't have my recipes for these anymore due to the fire - there are a number out on the web but I have never tried them.

I love mushrooms just sauteed in butter and wine. Maybe a little garlic.

Whole button mushrooms sauteed in butter salt and pepper are one of my favorites. The flavor that the mushrooms take on when you saute them is wonderful and I really don't think they need any other seasoning...

Saute in oil and garlic is wonderful.
An alternative would be to roast the mushrooms
I do it all the time - save any liquid which comes out - it's delicious!

I would roast or saute 3 different kinds of mushrooms

Quarter & saute 1-2 pounds of one type or a variety of quartered mushrooms in butter until just about tender. Add a dollop or so of dry sherry & continue cooking. Serve alongside meat or poultry, topped optionally with a little grated cheese if desired. (I rather like blue, but parmesan &/or gruyere also work).

This also makes a nice breakfast or brunch dish served over toast & obviously you'd have to increase it for a crowd. And yes, it's too late for your problem today, but you can file it for the future if you want - lol!

Try mushroom duexelles. There are tons of recipes on the internet. Here's one: Mushroom Duxelles Recipe - Recipe for Mushroom Duxelles.

They can be served on toast as an appetizer (crostini), or in puff pastry shells. I like to make miniature cups for them using finely textured white bread pressed into mini-muffin cups, brushed with butter and baked for a few minutes. They have an intense, highly concentrated mushroom flavor and are absolutely delicious. There are many other uses. Be creative.

i haven't made them in a while, but i love grilled gorgonzola portobellas.

marinate the caps in evoo and red wine or balsamic vinegar, then grill for just a minute or two on each side. while still hot, turn the caps gill side up and crumble some gorgonzola on them, so that it melts a bit. slice into triangles and serve.


or, you could sautee some crimini caps in butter, then add a half bottle of pinot noir and a few sprigs of thyme. simmer until the wine and butter reduces into a sauce.
