I just want to say this is probably one of the easiest side dishes I’ve ever made. A few years ago, I asked my sister what she usually did with mushrooms. She told me that she sometimes sautéed it with ginger and soy sauce. That’s it? Yes, that’s it! Hmm…I thought that was simple enough for a novice cook like me. Even I couldn’t mess it up. I tried it, and it was so easy! I couldn’t believe that with just 4 ingredients, I can have a simple side dish to go with pretty much anything.
I haven’t made it in a while, but it was so simple that it’s easy enough to remember all these years. This time around, I thought a slight addition of ground pepper would work, and it did, but it tastes great without it as well.
1 10 oz package baby bella mushrooms, sliced
