Don’t crowd the mushrooms! Something I’ve heard a number of times, but it wasn’t until I actually listened that I was introduced to the most delightful dish of succulent sautéed fungi. EVER.
Like most things in life, mushrooms need room to mature & flourish. Space to peak & reach their highest potential. Crowding causes suffocation, restricting the ability to thrive. All we (eh hem.. mushrooms :)) need is a little comfort, heat & good company. In the fungi world, these ingredients translate to olive oil, medium heat, fresh garlic and herbs & of course, mushrooms! My favorites being Baby Bella’s. 🙂 When measuring out your mushrooms, make sure to use a little less than what your pans capacity will hold. This will allow the mushrooms room to breathe & blossom into the juiciest and tastiest morsels you’ve ever had the pleasure of eating.
If there is one thing you listen to today, let it be, “don’t crowd the mushrooms!”.
