More About This Recipe
- Remember when we were vacationing together in Spain last month?
And we were at that crazy cool tapas restaurant? And everyone was knee-deep in sangria and spoon-feeding each other everything from succulent bites of olives and mushrooms to questionable chunks of fried and stuffed something or others?
Remember how much fun we had?! REMEMBER?
Oh, that was just in my head?
Well, I have an idea. Let's make some tapas-style sautéed mushrooms and PRETEND that we're in Spain, at a crazy cool restaurant, listening to the duo belting away in the corner, knee-deep in sangria and spoon-feeding each other these GA-LORIOUS buttery, winey, garlicky, lemony, parsley-y bites of paradise, m'kay?
Actually, we should just toothpick-feed ourselves. We don't want to look like fungus freaks.
All right, so grab some great baby bella and white button mushrooms.
And some beautiful fresh parsley.
Melt some butter in a cast iron skillet. This makes my eyeballs so happy.
Once it starts to bubble, add the garlic and wine. Bloom 30 seconds. Then toss in the star of the show. My nose is now happy.
Cover and simmer, simmer. Look at that.
Spritz with lemon and sprinkle with parsley. Oh, my my my.
The awesome thing is, you can serve these babies on the table, right out of the skillet. Or, serve them up on cutesy little plates.
Now, about that sangria….
*Bev loves the fact that sautéing mushrooms in butter, garlic and wine can still put her on the euphoria highway, without ending up in prison.

Tapas-Style Sautéed Mushrooms
I’d been oggling Bev’s recipe for sautéed mushrooms on Tasty Kitchen for a while, and finally got around to making them for a big group of friends back in February. And oh are they good. They do have a long cooking time–about 50 minutes–but require very little supervision, so you can let them cook away while you focus on the main dish you’re preparing. And once they’re done–oh my. Soaked in sweet wine flavor, pungent with garlic, brightened by the parsley and lemon juice and slightly crunchy with coarse salt. This dish reminds me of my deep love of food, and the pleasure of cooking what I truly enjoy to the very roots of my taste buds.
I modified it to serve a larger group, and used sliced baby bella mushrooms instead of the whole mushrooms Bev used–I also increased the cook time to make sure all the wine was absorbed by the mushrooms. Here goes!
32 oz baby bella and white mushrooms, whole or sliced
6 TBS Butter
8 cloves garlic
3/4 cup Marsala wine
2 pinches coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)
2 cups minced fresh parsley
1 lemon, juiced
Mince the garlic and parsley, and juice the lemon.
Melt the butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. When bubbly, add the minced garlic and bloom for about 30 seconds.
Add the Marsala wine and bring it to a boil.
Add the mushrooms, lower the heat and cook (covered) for 25 minutes, stirring and lightly salting occasionally.
Uncover and continue to simmer the mushrooms for another 25 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding salt to taste until the liquid has been almost completely absorbed. I also tossed in a little black pepper–I can’t resist that stuff.
After a while the liquid will be nicely absorbed and the mushrooms will now be ready for you to fall in love with them.
Toss in the lemon juice and parsley, sprinkle with coarse salt, and serve.
If you already love mushrooms, I guarantee you will love this way of making them.
Next time I’m alone for dinner I dream of making a huge batch and eating the whole thing myself.
Just want everyone to know where I stand.
A fun serving idea–you could bring the cast iron to the table with a bunch of skewers or forks and have everyone share the mushrooms directly from the pan. That would be very español.
And can I just say? I’m so glad to be sharing recipes again after such a long pregnancy-induced hiatus. Aaaaahhh.
