This back to basics recipe couldn't get any easier. I know mushrooms can be a hit or miss for most, but you just haven't had the right kind of mushrooms. I am here to teach you how to make Sautéed Mushrooms with Thyme. Since it's fall, thyme is the perfect herb to use here and it pairs very well with mushrooms.
Mushrooms are a great vegetable to pair with a lean protein and carb source like rice or potatoes. If you're ever feeling lazy and don't want to prepare a bunch of veggies, just make this recipe on the side! You can also enjoy these mushrooms in an omelette, veggie wrap, pasta, or nourish bowl. The possibilities are endless.
Mushrooms are a great source of potassium, which most Americans don't get enough of in their diets. SO, I highly recommend you give this back to basics recipe a go!
