Garlic mushrooms in Parmesan cheese


  • Fresh mushrooms (such as cremini or button mushrooms), cleaned and sliced
  • Garlic cloves, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat a skillet or pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and let it heat up.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the pan and sauté for about 1 minute until it becomes fragrant. Be careful not to let it brown too much.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan; you might need to cook them in batches if your pan isn’t big enough.
  4. Cook the mushrooms for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. As they cook, they will release their moisture. Continue cooking until the mushrooms are tender and any liquid they release has evaporated.
  5. Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper to taste. Remember that the Parmesan cheese will also add some saltiness to the dish.
  6. Once the mushrooms are cooked and nicely browned, remove the pan from heat.
  7. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the cooked mushrooms while they are still hot. The residual heat will help melt the cheese slightly.
  8. Toss the mushrooms gently to coat them with the melted cheese.
  9. Transfer the garlic mushrooms to a serving dish and sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the top for added freshness and color.
  10. Serve the garlic mushrooms in Parmesan cheese as a side dish or as a topping for pasta, rice, or crusty bread.
