Butter Garlic & Thyme Mushrooms

A delicious weekend snack which is ready in under 30 minutes and the textures are so gorgeous that i really wanted to immediately capture those, without wasting any time on further styling. So here’s a raw, rustic, straight from the pan shot. 

This pan seared butter garlic & thyme mushrooms are made with minimal and staple pantry ingredients and without any fuss. I promise kids would love to feast on it too.

I love the gorgeous caramelisation in the mushrooms that you can get by cooking it right. Some of the key points to keep in mind is not over crowing the pan in which it cooks. Mushrooms have a mind of their own and they refuse to brown up if they are in an over crowded space. Also not to stir the mushrooms while they cook. Either gently slip each one of them once they are cooked on one side or gently shake the pan.

We had veggie sandwiches for dinner today and this as a side with some lemonade. It was a perfect Sunday meal. What’s your easy-easy weekend meal or do you like to go elaborate on weekends? Tell me in the comments below. You can also connect with me on my Instagram or Facebook handle.
