Mushrooms with Basil

Hi Friends! With the warmer months nearly here, I find myself trying to incorporate more healthy, low-fat recipes into my menu planning. I know I really should be incorporating these EVERY month but the reality is that I tend to focus more on it during the warmer months.

I like to use white button mushrooms or cremini mushrooms, but you can use any type of mushroom for this recipe. They are sauteed in a butter and herb mixture that truly highlights the flavor of the fresh mushrooms.

Hello Friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Today I thought I would share a very simple, but tasty recipe for simple sautéed mushrooms that works nicely as a side dish or as a baked potato topper. This recipe is also Weight Watcher friendly. Great for balancing out those indulgences of hearty casseroles and baked deserts that we love!

How to Saute Mushrooms

You can use any type of mushroom and it comes together quickly on your stovetop. I prefer to use White Button, Shitaki or Baby Bella mushrooms for this recipe.

I originally shared these the second year on the blog, but I know some of you may have missed them and they are that good!

mmm.. seems so awesome. We grow basil so I know we'd love it. Cassidy can't eat mushrooms and it's one of the few things he can't eat but I love them.
