Spicy Teriyaki Mushrooms

Since I’m still unpacking and recuperating from a whirlwind girls’ weekend in Chicago, today I’m just going to share something quick and easy with you. Sauteed mushrooms are pretty simple to create without even using a recipe- just throw together a little butter, a little wine, some herbs, and you’re good to go. But sometimes I want something a little different, and these are just that. A little spicy and a little sweet, I bet they’ll become one of your favorite mushroom preparations, just as they are to us!

Spicy Teriyaki Mushrooms

Serves 4.


2 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 Tbsp white wine vinegar

1 Tbsp olive oil

½ tsp crushed red pepper

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp garlic powder

24 small button mushrooms (about 8 oz), halved

2 Tbsp sliced green onion


In a medium saucepan combine sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, oil, crushed red pepper, ginger and garlic powder. Add mushrooms and green onion. Sauté, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender. Cook for 7-8 minutes longer, or until there is very little liquid left in the pan. Serve immediately.
