Ingredients

  • 10 whole button mushrooms

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chopped mushroom stems and cook until softened, about 4 more minutes.
