Mushrooms à la grecque

Mushrooms à la grecque

The phrase à la grecque simply means a dish steamed with olive oil and aromatic herbs, usually with lemon. This recipe is best if prepared with very fresh mushrooms. Once cooked, these mushrooms will keep a good week in the fridge.


  • 2 lbs button mushrooms
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 slice lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper, ground
  • 1 Tbsp coriander seed, ground
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • bay leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Parsley and basil for garnish


  1. 1

    Place all ingredients, except parsley and basil, in a large pot.

  2. 2

    Stir well and bring to a boil on high heat. Cook until the water rendered from the mushrooms is evaporated, around 30 minutes. Still well on occasion to ensure the mushrooms cook evenly.

  3. 3

    Remove from heat and let stand at least an hour in the pot. Serve garnished with chopped parsley and basil.
