Wild Mushroom Tapas

Wild mushrooms, (in particular setas) are very popular in Spain. After an autumn rain, many people drive or walk out to the countryside and spend the day picking them. I grew up in the Pacific NW picking chanterelle mushrooms with my dad, so I appreciate this traditional way of gathering food. It was fun, and once cooked at the end of the day, the mushrooms tasted amazing.

Fall is a great time for mushrooms recipes. Visit your local market and find out what options you have available. Consider setas, oyster, shiitake, chanterelle, beech, and maitake varieties, but you can also use traditional cremini or baby portobellos, or button mushrooms in this recipe, too.

Wild Mushroom Tapas Recipe

Serves: Tapas for Four

Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes


  • 4 cups mushrooms, cleaned, rinsed, and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin Spanish olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup (150 cc) dry white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Heat a large sauté pan to medium-high heat, add mushrooms, stirring occasionally. As they begin to soften, about 3-4 minutes, you might notice that the mushrooms start to make a squeaking sound as they shrink in size and are stirred. At that point, reduce heat to medium; add olive oil, thyme, and garlic. Continue to stir intermittently for 2 minutes. Before garlic browns, add salt, white wine, and stir. Continue to cook another 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately while hot.
