Sautéed Mushrooms and Garden Spinach

Are you eating mushrooms?!?  If not, why not????  Mushrooms are surprisingly healthy- they are low in carbs and calories but high in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.  For this reason, they are known to boost the immune system and fight certain diseases.

I’m not sure how popluar mushrooms are in the general population, but personally I LOVE them.  I literally get “mushroom cravings,” so I’ll buy a pack of mushrooms when I stop at the store and sauté them for a snack, small meal, or as a side for dinner.  They are super simple and quick, and it takes minimal ingredients to create a tasty mushroom dish.  If you aren’t big on mushrooms or haven’t tried them, definitely give my recipe a try.  

Most of the time I just sauté the mushrooms, olive oil, butter, and garlic, but since it’s gardening season and my greens are in full bloom, I decided to grab some fresh spinach leaves and toss them in the pan.  The result was deeeeelicious!  Again, this recipe makes a great snack, small meal, or the perfect side dish- think steak, sausage, pork…
