Potato-Mushroom Sauté


A simple side or main, that will enhance your meal.  It is all about mastering the sauté method. The result should be a dish with a delicious, smoky flavor.

¼ cup vegetable oil

500 g small, new or waxy potatoes (avoid starchy ones), precooked and sliced in half

500 g mushrooms, clean and sliced in half

300 g green beans (I prefer the thin ones), trimmed – or fresh green asparagus when it is season!

sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

Optional:  Any herb of your preference (parsley, sage, rosmary, estragon, thyme, etc.), leaves finely chopped.


Preheat a large skillet, add oil.  Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Sauté over high heat for 3 min.

Add precooked potatoes and green beans.


Also sauté them over high heat, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden brown.  Correct the seasoning.

Optional:  Add herbs, stir, and sauté for one more minute.

Serve immediately as side or main dish.
