Creamy Sauteed Mushrooms

This easy and fantastic mushroom recipe comes from Rena & Healthy Fitness Meals and brings the wow.


  • 2 pounds cremini mushrooms dried with a paper towel and thickly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely chopped

  • ¼ cup chicken broth or stick or vegetable broth

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch1 ½ cups almond milk or any milk

  • kosher salt to taste

  • kosher pepper to taste

  • ½ cup mozzarella shredded or grated

  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese shredded or grated

  • 1 teaspoon thyme freshly chopped


  • First, heat the oil in a large heavy-bottom skillet over medium heat.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the stock and cornstarch.

  • Next, add the mushrooms in a single layer and cook undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes, then stir and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes more. You might have too cook them in batches, to avoid overcrowding the pan.

  • Once all mushrooms are slightly tender and golden, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, for 1 minute.

  • Then, add the stock-starch mixture together with the almond milk and season with salt and pepper.

  • Stir until sauce begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.

  • Finally, add in the shredded cheeses. Continue to cook until cheese is fully melted, then stir in the herbs and take off the heat.


  • Serving size about 1/2 cup

  • Vegan: To make this vegan, use vegan Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth.

  • Substitute: If you don’t have cornstarch, then you can substitute it with arrowroot or tapioca flour.

  • Mushrooms: We used whole cremini mushrooms, but any type of mushroom can work for this recipe.

  • Garlic: If you don’t have fresh garlic or thyme and need to work with what you have, then garlic and thyme powder will be fine.

  • Gluten-free: Serve this recipe with gluten-free noodles such as konjac, vegetable, or palming noodles.
