Black Pepper and Soy Sauteed Mushrooms
Mushrooms are like little sponges. They soak up whatever flavors you add to them. In this case, Black Pepper and Soy Sauteed Mushrooms.
Of course, I had to start with a little bit of garlic. 🙂
You want to cook the garlic JUST until you can smell it. Then load the skillet up with freshly sliced mushrooms. All the mushrooms.
I went with thickly sliced white mushrooms. You can also make this recipe using whole mushrooms, brown mushrooms, whatever shroom you like. (You might want to skip out on the unidentified variety of mushrooms in your backyard, though. Eeekk.)
