Mushrooms with Garlic (Champi ones al Ajillo)

Avoid overcooking the mushrooms as that will make them less plump and juicy.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces medium mushrooms, cut into halves
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Snipped parsley

  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except parsley. Cook and stir until hot, about 2 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with parsley.
