  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

How to clean mushrooms:
  • To get your mushrooms ready for cooking, you’ll need to rinse them, making sure any dirt is cleaned off. Rinse again, and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Make sure the mushrooms are completely dry when you begin cooking! This will help get the edges crispy and will ensure your mushrooms don’t end up soggy.
