Easy Braised Mushrooms & Peas

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 1-1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) sliced white button mushrooms
  • 1 package (10 oz) sliced baby bella or crimini mushrooms (they are the same thing)
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons water (if needed)
  • 2 tablespoons organic soy sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste (freshly cracked black pepper, if you prefer)
  • 2-3 green onions, finely sliced for garnish


1. In a colander, clean and rinse sliced mushrooms with water. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat butter and then add in the sliced mushrooms and chopped onion. Add a just a dash or two of salt to the skillet to cause the veg to sweat and produce more liquid in the pan. 

2. Saute mushrooms and onions for 3-4 minutes and then add frozen peas to the skillet. If more liquid is needed, add the two tablespoons of water. Cook all vegetables an additional 2- 3 minutes or until all ingredients are heated through. 

3. Remove skillet from the heat and if there is a lot of excessive liquid, use a colander to drain some of it out. Return drained veg to the pan and toss in the soy sauce and season to taste with additional salt and black pepper. Transfer braised mushrooms and peas to a serving bowl. 

4. Top with sliced green onions for garnish, serve warm and enjoy!
