For a quick and easy side that packs some serious flavor, make these garlic mushrooms! They have such a satisfying meaty, juicy texture, are incredibly flavorful, and go so well with any vegan main.
I like to cook mushroom in the instant pot as they get that delicious  Townes mushroom flavor without having to stand around sautéeing for 20-30 mins. Mushrooms cooked under pressure with less liquid have amazing flavor and texture.

You can serve them as a side for vegan nut roast for the holidays, or any weekday with pasta, over mashed potatoes, over grilled cauliflower or vegetables. Really any way you like.

You can make them creamy by adding in 1/4 cup of non-dairy cream, such as cashew cream or blended silken tofu instead of the cornstarch slurry.

Which kind of mushrooms to use:

I recommend you use white button mushrooms, cremini mushrooms or baby bella.

Storage & Leftovers:

These mushrooms can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Leftovers also make for an amazing wrap filling or pizza topping and I also like to add them to my favorite mushroom lasagna.
