Author: Sam Turnbull • It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or other light oil)
  • 16 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup full-fat coconut milk (the kind in a can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro or parsley
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. When it's hot, add the mushrooms and garlic. Sauté the mushrooms for about 5 minutes until they soften and begin to release their juices. 

  2. Stir in the coconut milk, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to a simmer. Continue to cook for about another 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in nutritional yeast if using, and cilantro or parsley. If you feel it needs a bit more sauce, add a dash more coconut milk as desired.
