  1. Olive Oil: Begin by drizzling 2 tablespoons of high-quality olive oil, setting the stage for the rich, golden hues that will embrace the cremini mushrooms.
  2. Vegan Butter: Infuse a luxurious touch with 3 tablespoons of vegan butter, providing a luscious and dairy-free alternative that enhances the overall flavor profile.
  3. Cremini Mushrooms: Elevate the dish with 5 cups of cremini mushrooms, also known as portobellini or baby bellas. Opt for freshness and quality to ensure a delightful outcome.
  4. Aromatics – Garlic and Rosemary: The dynamic duo of 3 thinly sliced cloves of garlic and 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary introduces a fragrant melody that enlivens the senses.
  5. Soy Sauce: Unleash the umami with 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, adding depth and complexity to the flavor palette. For a gluten-free option, tamari is an excellent alternative.
  6. Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper: Fine-tune the seasoning with 1/4 teaspoon each of sea salt and ground black pepper, ensuring a harmonious balance that enhances the natural taste of the mushrooms.


  1. Mushroom Slicing: Begin by delicately slicing the cremini mushrooms into thick, ½-inch slices, setting the stage for a substantial and satisfying bite.
  2. Oil and Butter Infusion: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil and vegan butter, allowing them to meld into a harmonious mixture. This forms the foundation of the dish, ensuring a luxurious texture and depth of flavor.
  3. Mushroom Roasting: Toss the sliced mushrooms into the pan, ensuring they are evenly coated with the oil and butter. Allow them to cook undisturbed for 4-5 minutes to achieve a deep golden brown on one side. This crucial step enhances the overall texture and visual appeal of the dish.
  4. Aromatic Ensemble: Introduce the sliced garlic and fresh rosemary to the pan, stirring gently to incorporate the aromatic components. Let this symphony of flavors unfold for an additional 3-4 minutes, allowing the essence of garlic and rosemary to permeate the mushrooms.
  5. Umami Boost: Elevate the taste profile with the addition of soy sauce, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Toss the ingredients together gently, sautéing for an additional 2 minutes to ensure the perfect fusion of flavors.
  6. Finishing Touch: The crowning glory comes with the inclusion of 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, lending a subtle sweetness that harmonizes with the savory notes of the dish. Squeeze the juice of half a lime for a refreshing citrus burst that completes the ensemble.
  7. Presentation: Serve this culinary masterpiece with finesse, ensuring that each plate is adorned with a generous ladle of the roasted mushrooms. Garnish with fresh herbs such as parsley or chives for a visually appealing and aromatic finishing touch.

Additional Tips:

  • Mushroom Varieties: While cremini mushrooms take center stage, feel free to experiment with other varieties such as white button mushrooms or sliced portobellos, adjusting the cooking time accordingly.
  • Sodium Conscious Option: For those mindful of sodium intake, consider omitting the sea salt and relying solely on the soy sauce for seasoning.
  • Freezing and Storing: Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. While the dish freezes well, note that the texture may undergo slight changes upon thawing. For optimal results, freeze the mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet before transferring them to a freezer-safe bag or container.

  • Slice the mushrooms into thick slices, around ½ inch thick.

  • Add the sliced mushrooms and toss them with the oil and butter. Spread them out in an even layer on the pan and let them cook without stirring for 4-5 minutes so that they can brown on one side. Then give them a stir.

  1. Cremini mushrooms – are also known as portobellini mushrooms or baby bellas. White button mushrooms also work great. You could actually use any fresh sliced mushrooms in this recipe including sliced portobellos.
  2. Soy sauce – is wonderful for flavor but if you’re gluten-free you could switch this for tamari.
  3. Salt – you can omit the sea salt and use only the soy sauce if you want to cut down on salt.
  4. Use a large frying pan or skillet. There should be plenty of space for the mushrooms to spread out in the pan in a single layer.
  5. Don’t stir. Let the mushrooms cook for 4-5 minutes without stirring them so that they can become a deep golden brown.
  6. Storing and Freezing: Keep them stored in a covered container in the fridge for 3-4 days. They can be reheated in the microwave. They freeze well though the texture may change slightly once thawed. Freeze them in a flat layer on a baking sheet and once frozen, transfer to a freezer safe bag or container.
