Summary

It doesn’t get much simpler and immune-supportive than this. The generous saute time for the mushrooms and shallots helps to bring out natural sweetness and flavors, while the lemon brightens it all up. No mushrooms? Think about other vegetables that would be delicious in a simple saute with a little shallot and lemon. Perhaps it’s green beans or carrots or kale? The options are pretty endless — no matter what you choose it’ll be delicious!

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Use red, yellow or white onion in place of shallots or omit the onion altogether if you don’t have it on hand. The mushrooms are still delicious with only lemon and pepper.

Layer it up
Top the mushrooms on a cooked whole grain with grilled tempeh or tofu.

Add a couple of handfuls of spinach or kale to the pan while the mushrooms are still hot and stir to wilt them.

Add a couple of pinches of mustard or cumin seed during Step 2 for extra flavor and nutrition.

Add a dash of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes for spice.
