  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp vegan butter OR 1-2 tablespoon hummus
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional herbs: thyme or rosemary
  • optional greens: chopped spinach or kale
  • 1-2 slices of hearty bread, toasted


  • Warm up a skillet over high heat.
  • Add in the olive oil. When oil is hot, add the mushrooms and onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes, until tender.
  • Add in the garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Add any chopped dried herbs here as well - link minced rosemary or a pinch of thyme. Saute the mushrooms with the added ingredients.
  • Turn heat to low or off and add the balsamic vinegar. Toss a bit. (Add an extra splash if desired!
  • Turn heat back on and turn to high for a minute or so. Things will be sizzling and steamy at this point. This is when you really want to see the mushrooms caramelizing and browning on the edges. The longer you cook them, the more you will see the lovely browned color forming and the flavors really developing as the moisture cooks off even more. Taste a mushroom and adjust salt/pepper to taste. If desired, fold in a handful of chopped greens like spinach or kale. Turn off heat.
  • Toast bread. Add either vegan butter or hummus to the bread.
  • Top bread with a plentiful amount of mushrooms - as many as you can cram on the slice. Top with optional chopped herbs or a pinch of chopped greens like spinach or kale. Serve!
