Yield: 4 side servings
Prep time: 15 minutes

  • 2 medium portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 180 g / 3 cups baby button mushrooms
  • 56 g / 1/4 cup Mirage margarine
  • 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 ml / 2 tsp lemon juice or dry white wine
  • 5 g / 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 g / 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

  • 4 g / 2 tsp chopped chives or flat-leaf parsley


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F (220°C).

Chef Notes

  • To ensure good caramelization make sure mushrooms are dry before adding them to the pan and that the pan is not overcrowded. If you do not have a large skillet sautée the mushrooms in two batches and combine for roasting.
