Recipe: Sautéed Marinated Royal Trumpet Mushrooms

Nov 9, 2020


This Thanksgiving, Adventist Health’s Chef Nina Curtis is giving the turkey a run for its money with five delicious vegan recipes that you won’t want to miss. First up: Sautéed Marinated Royal Trumpet Mushrooms.

A quick toss in an easy-to-assemble marinade gives these mushrooms extra flavor. Refrigerate overnight and then sauté just before Thanksgiving dinner. This dish goes well with many vegetable dishes, including a few of our favorites.

Sautéed Marinated Royal Trumpet Mushrooms

Yield: 4 servings


  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ pound royal trumpet mushrooms, halved lengthwise
  • ½ medium, finely diced white onion
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ½ tablespoon thyme
  • 1 ½ tablespoon sage
  • 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the mushrooms and whisk until mixed well.

Add the mushrooms to the marinade and coat well. Cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.

The next day, add just enough grapeseed oil to a sauté pan to make the pan glisten; place over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, turning the mushrooms occasionally, until they are tender, 5-7 minutes. Garnish with chives and serve warm.
