Balsamic Mushrooms with Basil

Balsamic Mushrooms with Basil 🌿 – This stir-fry comes together quickly and pairs well with rice.

I love mushrooms but the problem is that more often than not I have to eat it all by myself.

Sarvesh isn’t a fan and it’s very hard for him to eat mushrooms, except when they are very finely minced .

The other day I had a pack of mushrooms sitting in my refrigerator and since I knew I was going to eat it alone, I thought of using it to make a quick stir-fry with Asian flavors.

These Balsamic Mushrooms with basil is one of my new favorite ways to enjoy mushrooms. They are seriously so flavorful.

If you are a fan of Asian flavors like me, then you will love these!

I use a lot of garlic in this recipe, it goes really well with the mushrooms and of course some fresh basil for that amazing aroma is must.

This recipe uses white mushrooms, since that’s what I had on hand. But I think cremini mushrooms will also be really good here.
