These Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions are simple to make and such a delicious main dish topper or even a side dish!


  • 1 pound of baby bella (cremini) mushrooms
  • 1 medium or large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter (vegan as desired)
  • ½ cup of broth (I prefer veggie but chicken or beef also work well) OR ½ cup of white wine
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh herbs, I prefer thyme (other fresh herbs work well here as well!)
  • Optional squeeze of lemon juice


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot, add in the onion and saute for 8 minutes until it begins to soften. 
  2. Add in the butter and the mushrooms and saute for an additional 5 minutes. Mix in the garlic, salt + pepper, wine/ broth, herbs, and lemon juice. Cook for 5 additional minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and garnish with additional herbs. ENJOY!
