Chewy mushrooms, seasoned with salt, pepper, and thyme, are the perfect textural contrast to crispy crostini.
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as chanterelles, cremini, and oyster, wiped clean and sliced
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil, swirling to coat. Add half the mushrooms, season with a large pinch of salt and pepper, and cook until golden and tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and repeat, using 1 tablespoon oil. Add thyme to second batch, then transfer to bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss. Serve with crackers or crostini.
