Onion Mushroom Confit


One full cup of mushrooms has only 15 calories, yet, because they are high on fiber they tend to be pretty filling, they are also a good source of B vitamins, selenium, copper and potassium.

This recipe goes great over steaks, inside burgers or lettuce wraps, as pizza topping or  as a side dish


2 tbsp of  coconut oil, lard or ghee
1 large onion sliced
16 oz of mushrooms sliced
1/3 cup of water or favorite broth
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 to 1 tsp of pepper
2 tsp of garlic powder
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp of date paste  or 2 tbsp of honey


  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium – high heat.
  • Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add mushrooms, salt, garlic powder and pepper and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add broth or water and cook until mushrooms are soft.
  • Add vinegar and date paste and cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.

  1. Olive oil looses it’s healing benefits if heated and if cooking it in medium high heat then there are no beneits left. I think this defeats the purpose in my opinion. How about using coconut oil.
