Setas or mushrooms are very popular in Spanish cuisine. Many people in Spain drive or walk out to the countryside and spend the day picking them, especially after an autumn rain. Autumn is a great time for mushrooms. This dish is easy and quite delicious served with bread as a tapa as an accompaniment to a beef, lamb, or pork roast, steak or chops.


  • 12 to 14 large mushrooms, such cremini or white mushrooms
  • 3 large cloves of garlic
  • 4 to 6 tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup/177 milliliters dry white wine
  • Salt to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Place fresh mushrooms in a colander and place under running cold water to remove any dirt. Trim the stems. Slice.

  2. Peel the garlic cloves and mince.

  3. Place a large open frying pan over medium heat and pour in 4 to 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. When hot, add minced garlic. Before garlic browns, add sliced mushrooms and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring to coat mushrooms with oil, and mix with garlic.

  4. Pour in white wine and stir. Continue to cook another 5 minutes or so. Mushrooms will shrink and darken. Add salt to taste.

  5. Remove and serve immediately with a fresh baguette.
