This flavourful Mushroom Balsamic Vinegar Sauce is ready in 10 minutes. It is so versatile it is a great sauce for pasta or chicken or beef. If you are in a hurry for something quick that tastes good with easy ingredients look no further!
This is a great sauce if you are counting calories. Only 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and you could probably use cooking spray because it is only to saute the garlic. It probably adds a bit of body to the sauce but you could try it without if you are inclined.
I usually put Mushroom Balsamic Vinegar Sauce on pasta because it is so flavourful. Today I am putting it on chicken thighs.
And... did I mention how quickly you can make it? 10 minutes or less. Except for fresh mushrooms you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.
If you use pre-sliced mushroom it is a real cinch.
You can 'fancy' it up a bit if you use a blend of mushrooms or even add in some reconstituted porcini mushrooms.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 Tbsps minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon flour or substitute corn starch for gluten free

- 4 cups cremini mushrooms sliced (or mushroom of your choice)
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 bay leaf
- ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
- Heat the oil in a skillet and saute the garlic for a minute or so. Add the flour and stir. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Discard the bay leaf and serve over pasta or chicken or beef.
