Recipe Card


  • 1 pound button mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener (such as erythritol)
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Step 1

    Use a damp cloth, kitchen towel, mushroom brush or a pastry brush to brush off excess dirt from the surface of the mushrooms. For super dirty mushrooms, fill a bowl with cold water, rub against the surface to get rid of excess dirt then blot them dry. I would advise blotting each button mushroom, we don't want to end up with soggy mushrooms!

  • Step 2

    To slice the mushrooms, first, cut in half then again in quarters. You can slice them as small as you prefer.

  • Step 3

    Heat a skillet or a wide pan under high heat. Add olive oil and allow this to heat up. Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer to avoid overcrowding and allow them to sear for about 2-5 minutes so get properly browned and release excess fluid.

  • Step 4

    Proceed to add the minced garlic and fry for 1 minute. Next, add the balsamic vinegar, sweetener and thyme then allow to sauté for a further 3-4minutes. Season with salt and pepper then top with the butter. Turn off the heat and allow the butter to melt.

  • Step 5

    Remove from heat, top with some extra thyme or butter (optional) and serve.
