Red wine mushrooms with garlic

Garlicky, red wine-infused mushrooms are a wonderful side dish or pasta topper. They have a decadent & full-bodied taste, but they are a breeze to make.

  • 2 teaspoons non-dairy butter divided (Plus more if desired)
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms or white button, quartered
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons dry red wine*
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives garnish


  • Bring a large skillet to a medium-high heat. Add one teaspoon of non-dairy butter to the skillet. Once the butter is melty and glistening, add mushrooms to the pan and a pinch of salt. Allow them to brown and release their liquid, being careful not to move them too much. Continue cooking for 8 to 10 minutes until they have a deep brown even color.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low. Move the mushrooms to one side of the pan and add the remaining 1 teaspoon of non-dairy butter to a small section of the pan. Once it melts, add the garlic to that area and sauté it for a minute or two, until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Incorporate the garlic and mushrooms. Then deglaze the pan with the red wine, loosening any bits that are sticking to the pan. Allow them to cook for a couple of minutes longer and soak up all of the wine.
  • If desired, add another small dollop of non-dairy butter, and incorporate it with the mushrooms. Add salt to taste, garnish with chopped fresh chives, and serve.


*I recommend Malbec, Tempranillo, or Garnacha
