As side dish or piled high in a veggie bowl, this flavorful, oil-free Simple Herbed Mushrooms dish will get those taste buds tingling.



Mushroom Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. cremini mushrooms, sliced *
  • 2 Tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari *
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder (+/-) *
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder (+/-) *
  • ½ teaspoon dried rubbed sage (+/-) *
  • ¼ teaspoon dried ground rosemary (+/-) *
  • ½ teaspoon dried crushed thyme leaves (+/-) *
  • pinch to 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (+/-)

Optional Add-ins:

  • pinch to 1/8 teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *

Optional Topping:

  • Freshly chopped parsley


  1. Place the cremini mushrooms into to a nonstick skillet with the tamari, sauté for several minutes; then add all the remaining ingredients.  Sauté for 7 to 9 minutes to allow the mushrooms to release their moisture and reduce in size.
  2. Taste test and add more seasonings, if desired. Cook for several minutes if additional seasonings are added.
  3. Serve, sprinkled with freshly chopped parsley (optional).


*Tamari: We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium.  You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos.

*Herbs/Seasonings:  Our family was totally divided over the different accents of herbs and seasoning. Some wished to really accent the garlic (garlic powder), while others preferred less sage and thyme.  The beauty of this recipe is that it is completely customizable based upon personal preference. Start low and build from there.  Additionally, feel free to leave out any herbs or seasonings that you are not a fan of and build up spices/herbs that you love.

*Alternative/Optional Ingredients:  You can also add a little splash of good quality balsamic vinegar to add a little extra flavor.

*Dried Rosemary Powder:  We used Penzeys Rosemary Spain Powdered.  Feel free to use your favorite powdered Rosemary.

*Dried Rubbed Sage:  We used Penzeys Sage Albanian Rubbed.  Feel free to use your favorite rubbed sage.

*Dried Thyme Crushed Leaves:  We use Penzeys French Thyme.  It has amazing flavor.  If you can’t find dried crushed thyme leaves, you can use ground thyme, but use half the amount.

*Mushrooms:  We used cremini mushrooms; however, you can use your favorite mushrooms or blend of mushrooms.

*Sea Salt:  Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.

*Serving: 3 to 4

*Storage:  Use within 4 to 5 days.
