Mushrooms with Garlic & Parsley – Spicy & Succulent Appetizer

Here is a good and simple mushroom dish to keep in mind when planning company meals. Mushrooms are particularly attractive set around the roast chicken as a garnish. The mushrooms can be prepared ahead of time and serve at room temperature.

Mushrooms with Garlic & Parsley

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (1 votes, average: 5.00 out of 5)


  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 lb. white button mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley



In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and paprika and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant. Increase the heat to high, add the mushrooms, lemon juice, and dry white wine, stir well, and sauté until the mushrooms are cooked for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.


Cultivated mushrooms require only a gentle washing in cold water and a quick trimming of the cut ends of the stems to be ready for use. Don't overcook: it makes them tough and tasteless.

    This was one of the first adult things I learned to make.I think I used Julia's recipe in the first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Great stuff, and still incredibly good. Ken

    Nabil, you can put the vegetable stock instead of white wine. Or red wine perhaps-))
