7-Minute Healthy Sautéed Crimini Mushrooms
"Healthy Sautéing" Crimini Mushrooms is George's revolutionary new way to prepare them without the used of heated oils. This not only results in delicious Mushrooms but helps retain their wealth of health-promoting nutrients.
 7-Minute Healthy Sautéed Crimini Mushrooms Prep and Cook Time: 7 minutes

  • 1 lb medium crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 TBS low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth or water
  • 1 tsp Mediterranean Dressing
  • Optional:
  • 2 TBS fresh rosemary
  • few drops of soy sauce


  1. Chop or press garlic and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat 5 TBS broth or water in a covered stainless steel skillet on medium heat if using a medium size burners or on low if using a large size burner.
  3. As soon as liquid begins to steam add the sliced mushrooms and cover with a tight fitting lid, for 3 minutes. They will release liquid as they cook.
  4. Remove the lid. Since Crimini Mushrooms are not as watery as other button mushrooms, it is best to stir constantly for the last 4 minutes. The liquid will evaporate, and the mushrooms will become golden brown but not burned. "Healthy Sauté" will concentrate both the flavor and nutrition of Crimini Mushrooms.
  5. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss crimini mushrooms with the Mediterranean dressing ingredients while they are still hot. The dressing does not need to be made separately.
Serves 2

Research shows that fat-soluble vitamins found in foods, such as Crimini Mushrooms, may be better absorbed when consumed with fat-containing foods like extra virgin olive oil.

For Day 2 of the World's Healthiest Foods Menu,this dish is served with the Cauliflower and Turmeric recipe. You can save using an extra skillet by preparing the mushrooms first and then using the same skillet to prepare the cauliflower.

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which 7-Minute Healthy Sautéed Crimini Mushrooms is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
