Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions in Olive Oil and Butter to Use Over Steak or a Juicy Mushroom Burger or as a Side Dish
We love mushrooms and eat them at least once a week because of their health benefits. Mushrooms are a low calorie food but high in nutrition! One cup of sliced mushrooms gives you a full serving of vegetables for the day.
We saute our mushrooms with onions and a little garlic, using both butter and olive oil for added taste. And with just a few shakes of Tamari soy sauce, we have some of the tastiest mushrooms and onions to use on burgers or a pizza topping or just a delicious and healthy side dish.
We use Tamari soy sauce which is gluten-free in place of traditional soy sauce. Buy a bottle and see if this works for you and your family. With the bombardment of gluten in our diets, it helps to find healthy gluten-free products that are family friendly.
