Buttered Mushrooms with Onions and Herbs

Cremini mushrooms are richer in flavor and nutrients than the white button mushrooms.


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

3 shallots, thinly sliced

½ pound crimini mushrooms, sliced

½ tablespoon butter

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon dried basil

  • Add the oil to the rice cooker, cover, and set to Cook. When the base of the cooker pot gets warm, add the shallots and fry about 3 minutes until slightly soft.

  • Add the mushrooms and butter and fry for about 10 minutes, until mushrooms turn soft. Cover the rice cooker occasionally in the process of cooking. If the mushroom mixture dries out too quickly, switch to Warm, and continue to cook the mushrooms.

  • When mushrooms turn completely soft, add the salt, pepper, oregano, and basil. Mix well, cover rice cooker, set to Warm, and simmer for 2 minutes.
