With the warmer months nearly year, 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.
This delicious and simple stovetop buttered mushrooms with basil recipe is not only a great vegetable side dish idea, but it is also incredibly simple to make.
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.
