Around this time of the year, I am pulling out my jeans, boots and sweaters. I love decorating the house for the season and gearing up for the celebrations ahead. But there is something else I do this time of year. I also try to incorporate more healthy, low-fat recipes into my menu planning.
With the holidays coming up, I know that I will want to partake in the array of comfort food, desserts and festive cocktails that come with the gatherings of the season without worrying about putting on extra pounds.
So today I thought I would share a very simple, but tasty recipe for 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 pumpkin beers, hearty casseroles and baked deserts (like cupcakes)!
Simple Sautéed Mushrooms with Basil
3 cups fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced.
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon basil
1 clove garlic, crushed (bottled chopped garlic ok)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Over medium low heat, melt butter in sauce pan. Add sliced mushrooms.
Cook over medium heat, stirring often.
Add garlic, salt, pepper, basil and oregano.
Heat about 4-6 minutes until mushrooms are browned.
Remove from heat and serve.
It is a super tasty dish and makes 6 half-cup servings.
Each serving is about 2 Points+ Weight Watcher points.
What do you like to eat to balance out the indulgences of the season?
