  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb mushrooms baby Bella or cremini or mushrooms sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp sour cream
  • parsley chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms in 1-2 Tbsp olive oil until the mushrooms have released their liquid and become golden brown and tender (make sure the liquid cooks down), about 7 minutes.
  • add the garlic and cook another minute.
  • Stir in the sour cream and parsley.
  • Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot.



  • To clean the mushrooms, use a damp paper towel to remove dirt. If you use water to clean mushrooms, it can cause them to become waterlogged. 
  • If you want to use water to clean the mushrooms, quickly rinse the mushrooms and pat them dry with paper towels, but don’t soak them.
  • When cooking mushrooms, don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook mushrooms in a pan with a good amount of surface area. You want to be able to spread the mushrooms in a single layer to allow contact with the hot pan and let moisture evaporate quickly so they brown nicely. 
  • Use full-fat sour cream.  Low fat sour cream will liquidize when heated and the sauce will become runny.
