Easy Sautéed Chanterelle Mushrooms

This beautiful bright orange / yellow fresh sautéed chanterelle mushrooms recipe (chanterelles) is healthy, nutty, earthy, peppery, chewy and very easy to cook.

Don't know what to do with these 'shrooms? Serve chanterelle mushrooms as a stellar side dish or as a main dish served over toast or pasta or as a garnish for steak, chicken, or omelets. Add some herbs if you got 'em and/ or a little lemon juice or vinegar if you like.

How to cook: Because mushrooms hold so much water (chanterelles less so than other types), I like to sauté or pan fry them in a hot pan with no fat to start with.

This makes mushrooms "scream" a little when they hit the pan. Seriously, they talk to you as they're cooking if the pan is the perfect hot heat. But you also don't want the pan to be smokin'. Fine lines. Add a little olive oil and turn down or remove from heat if the pan starts to smoke.

Like any mushroom - chanterelles are cleaned by taking a paper towel and rubbing the dirt off. Don't soak them, they are like little sponges and will get "slimy" fast.

If you are eating them raw and want more than the paper towel method, then give them a very fast rinse and slice or eat right away.

Vegans can skip the butter in this chanterelle mushroom recipe and just use olive oil or use a non-dairy alternative. Paleo and Whole 30 can use grass fed butter.

Lastly, chanterelle mushrooms can be a bit pricy which makes them intimidating because that's a lot of cash to blow! Dive deep into it and don't eat them to fast, so you can savor this very special mushroom!

This is a traditional type of flat, long, and wide pasta. It’s similar to fettuccine just a bit wider. It can be used with thick ragu-style sauces or something lighter like this recipe here. If you can’t hunt down any tagliatelle, try out fettuccine, linguini, or even spaghetti.

Sauteed Chanterelle Mushrooms Garlic and Thyme

There are a 1000 (actually a lot more) different ways to use mushrooms…and there are dozens or mushrooms available in today’s supermarkets and specialty shops. I use mushrooms as ingredients in my dishes, as stand-alone side dishes and as garnish. The variety of mushrooms available and the different recipe options let you go in so many different directions.

Chanterelle mushrooms are one of my favorites and in this recipe video, I show you a simple but elegant way to prepare them. Chanterelle’s are wild mushrooms, that are not always available, so when I see them in the store I usually buy them. They have a beautiful golden color to them, and a have an almost sweet meaty taste. Below, and demonstrated in the video, is my recipe for sautéed chanterelle mushrooms with garlic and thyme.

Ingredients for Chanterelle Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme

  • Cup of chanterelle mushrooms chopped into large bit size pieces
  • One clove of garlic
  • Half teaspoon of fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Lemon Juice (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

I like to cook my chanterelle mushrooms to “well done”, where just about all the water in them is fully cooked out and they take on a chewy, “meaty” texture. If you use high heat and let the chanterelles go long enough, they get nice crispy edges, almost like a chip.

For this dish there’s just a few things to remember. First it’s important to cut the mushrooms into fairly large pieces as they shrink a lot when cooked and as you cook them, don’t fiddle with them too much. Let the chanterelles sear on each side and get nice browned all over. Finally, anytime you cook with garlic, you want to make sure not to burn it, so add it late in the process, just a few minutes before you’re ready to take the mushrooms off.

  • Cut the chanterelle mushrooms into 1 – 2 inch pieces you can watch how I chop mushrooms in this video.
  • Remove any obvious pieces of dirt or debris, but don’t wash them in water, as that can water log the mushrooms
  • Heat a frying pan and add a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of butter
  • Add the mushrooms, a couple pinches of salt and pepper and toss to coat
  • NOTE: Mushrooms have a tendency to suck up olive oil. If at any point the bottom of the pan looks dry, add some additional oil.
  • Let the chanterelles sear on one side, over medium heat (don’t move them around too much) until they are browned (about 10 minutes), then toss the mushrooms in the pan to expose the other side to the heat.
  • Let them continue to brown and notice in the video how dark I let them get. Eventually they will give up most of their water and be about half the size that you started with. The edges should be crispy and the texture firm.
  • Add a clove of minced garlic and the fresh thyme leaves and let them cook for a few minutes until the garlic has softened, but not burned
  • If I’m serving as a side, I like to hit the mushrooms with a touch of lemon juice or vinegar at the end for a little acidity
  • Taste and re-adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed

Now that the chanterelle mushrooms are sautéed off, you can take them in a number of directions. I love them simply served as a side dish, maybe garnished with a bit of chopped parsley. But you they work in a ton of dishes. here are some of my favorites:

I love cooking these mushrooms with steaks especially. Here are few of my favorites to pair with them:

Recipe Summary

  • 4 ounces bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion (8 oz.) peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 bunch (10 to 12 oz.) red chard
  • 2 cups arborio (short-grain white) rice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • About 6 cups fat-skimmed chicken broth
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Roasted chanterelle mushrooms (see notes)

In a 12-inch frying pan with 2-inch-tall sides or a 5-quart pan over medium-high heat, stir bacon until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Discard all but about 1/2 tablespoon bacon fat from pan.

Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and stir frequently until onion is very soft and browned, 20 to 25 minutes (if onion starts to scorch, reduce heat further and stir in 2 tablespoons water).

Meanwhile, rinse chard. Trim and discard stem ends. Thinly slice stems crosswise and coarsely chop leaves. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring about 3 quarts water to a boil. Add chard and cook, stirring occasionally, until stems are tender-crisp to bite, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, place in a large bowl of ice water until cool, and drain again.

Add rice to onions and stir until opaque, about 3 minutes. Add wine and stir over medium heat until absorbed, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 6 cups broth, a cup at a time, stirring after each addition until almost absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes total (rice should be tender to bite).

Stir in cheese, butter, bacon, chard, and roasted mushrooms. If risotto is thicker than desired, stir in a little more broth. Spoon risotto into wide, shallow bowls.


Step 1

Melt 3 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly golden, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in wine and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter, remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add cream and nutmeg and cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon oregano. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Toss in a skillet with cooked pasta, or serve over smashed boiled potatoes. Garnish with more oregano.

How would you rate Fricassee of Chanterelles?

Not a review, but a question (not sure where to ask)--how much nutmeg am I supposed to use? The recipe doesn't list a measurement!

This creamy, comforting risotto features WSU’s own Cougar Gold cheese as well as a mix of mushrooms, including seasonal chanterelles.

⅓ cup peeled and minced shallots (or ⅓ cup white or yellow onion, finely chopped)

1 pound flavorful mushrooms (such as crimini, portobello, chanterelle, oyster, and shiitake, or a combination), thinly sliced.

Before you start cooking your chanterelle mushrooms, always make sure that you give them some cleaning.

Ideally, a clean dried chanterelle will only require gentle brushing to be ready. However, because of the earthy habitat, there might be some dirt particles here and there that require rinsing the mushroom under the water while brushing.

Although some people claim that mushrooms will lose their taste if they’re washed, a lot of chefs believe that gently washing the mushrooms won’t affect their taste at all.
