Pluck thyme, rosemary & oregano leaves from the stems against their growth direction, then finely chop and put aside. Clean mushrooms and if necessary halve or quarter them.

Next, heat up a large pan adding a good dash of oil and sauté the mushrooms for 3 – 4 minutes over high heat until brown all around. As soon as the mushrooms start to lose water, add the finely chopped herbs, 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika powder and a good pinch of salt & pepper. Then give everything a last good stir or toss until all the spices & herbs are evenly distributed.

Afterwards serve the fried mushrooms along with the garlic sauce.

  1. So delicious! I’ve been looking for years for the right festival mushroom recipe. I’ve tried more than half a dozen recipes.

    This one knocks it out of the park. It’s as I remember from the scores of festivals I attended while living in Wurzburg and Schweinfurt in the early 1990s.

    Thank you so much!
