Mushrooms have been recognized for thousands of years as having medicinal properties and they have been held in high esteem in ceremonial practices and traditional folk remedies all over the world. Good scientific data has been published that reveals that mushrooms are full of anti-oxidant, anti-diabetic, immunomodulatory, and anti-cancer properties. They are also low in calories, high in fiber, and delicious! Here’s an easy, quick, delicious way to incorporate them in your next meal. Add on top of rice or pasta, or as a savory side dish. Enjoy!
Sautee chopped garlic (here I use 5 cloves) in olive oil with a 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
Add chopped sage, rosemary, and red pepper flakes, all to taste. I love savoriness so I add a lot. Sautee until the edges of the garlic start to turn golden brown, about 2 more minutes.
Add the washed, sliced mushrooms and stir until they start to become soft and release water, about 5 minutes. Here I use large portabella caps. Bon appetit!
