Herbed Italian Garlic Mushroom in Olive Oil (Vegan)

Jump to Recipe

This Herbed Italian Garlic Mushroom in olive oil is an easy, quick and healthy recipe made with mushrooms, garlic and herbs. A vegan recipe.

garlic mushroom served on a white plate with buns and a spoon kept on the right side.

As a variation, you could also add baby corns. Adding baby corn makes the dish great and awesome. Without baby corn too this dish tastes great.

This Italian Garlic Mushroom recipe is for a request I got, to post some recipes which use Olive oil.

My first recipe is an Italian one. I discovered this dish in “Il Fungo Magico” – an Italian restaurant in Koregaon Park – a suburb of Pune – Maharashtra, India. In the first go, we liked this dish.

I tried making it similar to the restaurant one and it was a spot on taste exactly like the one we had. There after I have made this dish many times. When I have mushrooms at home and when I want to make quick lunch or dinner, I most of the times end up making this recipe.

Usually, I serve these herbed garlic mushrooms with homemade breads/buns or with rotis (whole wheat Indian flatbreads). This recipe can be doubled as well as tripled.

Servings 1 to 2


  • 200 to 250 grams button mushrooms, 1 packet of fresh button mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mixed dried herbs consisting of thyme, sage, parsley, rosemary, basil and oregano (you can increase or decrease the amount of herbs as per your taste or add your favorite herbs)

  • Rinse the mushrooms well. Drain.
  • Then chop or slice them. Keep aside.
  • In a pan, heat the olive oil. Add garlic and saute it for about 30 seconds to a minute. No need to brown the garlic.
  • You can add the chopped onion at this stage and saute them till they are translucent.
  • Now add the mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms. The mushrooms will loose water and shrink in size.

  • When the mushrooms are well browned and have enough shrunk in size, it means they have got cooked. There should be no trace of moisture or water in the mushrooms. The mushrooms should be sauteed till they become golden from the edges or sides. Keep on stirring while sauteing them, for a uniform color.
  • Remove them from pan and serve them with garlic bread.
  • You can also put a topping of these herbed garlic mushrooms on the garlic bread.
  • Another option is that you can top them with grated mozzarella or cheddar cheese and bake or grill in the oven till the cheese melts.

  1. Hi Dassana,

    I refer to your site with whatever vegetables at hand I have and find something that I can with it with minimum fuss. I am a working woman and don’t have the time to gather many ingredients and rustle a meal.

    I eat mushrooms thrice a week, and I look for variations here on your site. I have tried your paneer rice and that’s a staple every fortnight at my home. I don’t like any thing schezuan and wondered if you would give alternatives to that? I am making fried rice (your recipe) and want to try veg balls in hot garlic sauce, but that’s a schezuan version 🙁

    I made this mushroom recipe and it could be done in such a short time. Thanks! It turned out lovely. My family had it with rotis.

    Thanks a lot. You are simply great for folks like with no-fuss steps clearly explained.

    1. thank you much sulekha. i can understand as i also used to work outside before and one just want to keep things simple,quick and easy. for the veg balls in hot garlic sauce, just use the base of tomato sauce, red chili sauce or red chili paste and soy sauce. this is the easiest recipe with mushrooms which i also make and also have it with rotis or homemade bread. you can also try mushroom pulao and even this one is easy to make.

  2. Oh wow. Tried this out once, a bit modified. We had guests and I had to think of something fast to cook. Guess what – the guests wanted more and more with each bite! Couldn’t keep up. 🙂 Tasty stuff! –
