We found a lovely recipe for our mushrooms this week. It’s simple, easy and low calorie!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh sliced shiitake mushrooms (ideally organic)
  • 3 Tbsp. low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp. each of fresh rosemary, oregano, or feta cheese

Directions

  1. Chop garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance its health-promoting properties.
  2. Remove stems from mushrooms and slice.
  3. Heat broth in a stainless steel skillet. When broth begins to steam, add mushrooms and cover for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove skillet cover and let mushrooms cook for 4 more minutes.
  5. Toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and whatever optional ingredients desired.
