1. To make the sauteed cauliflower and mushrooms skillet: Heat the butter and oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion until softened (about 3 minutes).

2. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 4-5 minutes on all sides. Make sure the mushrooms render as much moisture as possible. Brown them a little more, if necessary, to avoid the side dish becoming soggy at the end. Keep an eye on it so they don’t burn either ;)

3. Once mushrooms are well browned, add cauliflower florets. Cook until golden and crispy on the edges, about 8-10 minutes. Veggies must be well browned.

4. Pour in the vegetable stock and cook for 2 minutes, to reduce the sauce slightly.

5. Add thyme, one tablespoon of parsley, and garlic. Cook the mushrooms and cauliflower for half a minute, until fragrant. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with remaining parsley, and serve the garlic butter, mushrooms, and cauliflower skillet immediately. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the cauliflower and mushroom skillet recipe

  • Take your time to brown the onion and mushrooms, almost to the point of caramelization. This makes a difference in flavor and texture!
  • Turn this mushroom and cauliflower recipe to 100% vegan by using olive oil instead of butter/ghee.
  • How to choose the best cauliflower: Look for firm, white, heads of cauliflower with green leaves and minimal brown spots on the leaves and the head itself.
  • Try and cut the cauliflower florets into a uniform size to ensure even cooking with the mushrooms.
  • Clean mushrooms by wiping them off with a clean cloth. Avoid using water because it will soak moisture and render a lot of water while cooking.
  • Try using shallot instead of onion.

How to prep this cauliflower and mushroom recipe ahead?

To prep ahead of time, cut the cauliflower and blanch in boiling salted water for one minute. Then, transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking, and finally drain and pat dry. Store the pre-cooked cauliflower florets in an airtight container for until you’re ready to cook. This will save you time when you’re on the stove.

How to make cauliflower taste better?

Well, this recipe is pretty much an answer in itself, right? Cauliflower is pretty bland on its own, so whatever cooking method that includes roasting, sauteeing, or stir-frying will work well because the vegetable will develop a nice golden caramelized crust that greatly enhances the taste. Seasoning is important too!

How long should you keep the cauliflower and mushroom leftovers?

You can keep the mushroom and cauliflower leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet with a few drops of water to loosen up the sauce.

    OMG!!! My husband and I were both in heaven! I made it vegan with margarine added a large russet potato which I large diced and microwaved earlier . Thank you so much.

    Very good recipe. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

  • Laura

    2024-02-01 15:43:50

    Made this, with a few modifications, and loved it. I used vegan butter & vegetable broth to make it vegan, and added two cans of cannellini beans to make it a full dinner. Used the whole cauliflower & onion, as well. Will definitely make this again.

    2024-01-25 12:33:53

    Is is possible to use frozen broccoli florets?

  • Debra

    2024-01-09 17:33:58

    I’ve mad this many times as it’s delicious. I use the cauliflower stems and leaves if they’re in good condition. I also add turmeric extra black pepper lemon juice rosemary and lemon thyme.

    Just made this and it's soooo good! I made it as a main dish and served over brown rice. Yummy..

  • Violet

    2023-11-20 12:26:05

    I want to make this for thanksgiving, and wondered if you had any tips for keeping it warm? Do you think I could just stick it in a warm crockpot after it’s cooked?

  • Kelly

    2023-09-10 19:34:02

    This recipe takes about 45 - 60 minutes to get the browning done without burning the brown at the bottom of the pan.

  • Steff

    2023-08-20 17:52:39

    Excellent side dish. This is a definite save! I added a few more garlic cloves and some old bay. Delicious!

    Made this as written except I cooked it a little longer to soften the cauliflower. Both my husband and I loved it.

  • JLynn

    2023-05-24 13:31:03

    We made this as written- with addition of onions and chicken. My husband was wanting to reduce carbs in his diet and this was the first of the recipes from this website that we tried. It was wonderful!

    Insane. Tasty. Easy. Fast. I had to sub Brussels sprouts for cauliflower and it was STILL delicious! I usually roast everything, but this recipe was tasty as is! Thanks!

  • Jill

    2023-01-29 10:21:42

    i love this recipe. I have made it many times. I offer one suggestion, I roast the cauliflower on a cookie sheet with a little oil and salt and pepper before starting the recipe. It comes out much more tender and it is helpful if you have digestive issues and need the cauliflower to be softer.

  • Sue

    2023-01-23 12:25:33

    Do you think this recipe would freeze okay?

  • Cat

    2023-01-17 21:49:29

    It was delicious, will definitely make again.

  • Linda

    2022-11-28 20:25:22

  • Thulisiwe

    2022-10-07 12:50:11

    After struggling with cauliflower ideas; this was such a welcome pleasure. I made it and enjoyed it as a main meal. The butter and garlic gave it more flavour. Thanks

  • Karen

    2022-09-24 19:38:56

    I made this as my main meal, I could know doubt eat this once or twice a week!

  • Penny

    2022-09-08 18:14:17

    I loved this recipe! I cut mushrooms into chunks and added Montreal steak seasoning and hot pepper flakes. Who knew mushrooms and cauliflower go so well together. Thanks!

    2022-04-15 21:41:11

    Was a great side,next long slices of onion.

    2022-02-05 20:30:00

    DELICIOUS! I used chicken stock instead of vegetable and added a little sherry. I will definitely make this recipe again.

  • Michelle

    2022-01-30 20:00:34

    Good! I added more liquid as I am at a higher elevation. Served with Wild Rice

  • Teresa

    2022-01-29 21:29:47

    I had to pull the onions out and then brown the mushrooms and cauliflower and add the onions back. I added the spices and served it over an omelette. It was good. I didn't need any liquid after that.

  • Vari

    2022-01-27 19:31:15

    Lots of butter but sooo good. Ate it on its own but would be a great side dish too. So yummy.

  • Mary Monus

    2021-12-09 19:44:24

    Very good side dish using cauliflower. Went well with baked Salmon.

  • Condoleeza

    2021-12-08 15:29:23

    Anything with 4 tablespoons of butter will be good! Not the healthiest though. Has anyone made with just olive oil?

  • Stephen

    2021-11-20 07:36:53

    Beautiful goes with my Ribeye steak. Thank you

  • Linda

    2021-11-17 20:56:01

    This recipe is very good! It was a little more work than I thought it would be, but worth it.

  • Eva

    2021-11-08 12:36:49

    It was delicious! I didn't have button mushrooms so I substituted with brown cremini mushrooms quartered.

  • Sheri

    2021-10-18 02:51:58

    This recipe was a hit with the family, nice change from the common cauliflower cheese laden recipes.

    This was fantastic and so easy to make that I'll be making it again soon!

  • Jeri

    2021-06-29 01:35:09

    Absolutely a keeper! Excellent flavors! I did not have little mushrooms so I just used my large brown and cut in 1/4ths....EXCELLENT!

  • Arlene

    2021-05-16 02:45:45

    I’ve made this a couple of times now and I like the flavour and texture. However, I live alone so I don’t make four servings as it wouldn’t freeze well. Tonight I made one portion but I added two very lean rashers of bacon and one diced stick of celery to the onion. I then followed the recipe until I came to adding the stock. Since I don’t have tiny amounts of stock hanging around I added in a little white wine and immediately put on a lid so that everything steamed briefly. Half of this then made my dinner this evening and the rest will be lunch tomorrow. A recipe definitely worth keeping.

  • Roxie

    2021-05-14 13:32:09

    Second time making this. Made as written and absolutely love it!!

  • Carol

    2021-04-26 15:15:01

    I loved it, but best of all, my husband loved it!

  • Chris

    2021-04-20 16:47:24

    Looks great. I might add some wine, or replace the vegetable stock with it as a variant.

  • Mary

    2021-04-18 12:56:21

    I didn't even use the fresh herbs, and this was still absolutely delicious, loved it!

  • Cathy den Boer

    2021-04-04 10:56:22

    Made this for first time as a side for our Easter meal and it was a big hit. Great flavor. Cut up everything ahead and was quick and easy to cook just before serving. My mushrooms were large so I cut them in quarters.

  • Madelyn

    2021-03-31 19:22:23

    Absolutely delicious! The fresh herbs are a must in my opinion, and I used mushroom stock for the vegetable stock.

  • Sue

    2021-03-26 19:22:46

    Really liked this! Great side! Putting it in to the rotation.

  • Terri

    2021-02-25 18:31:44

    Great recipe. I used Marsala wine instead of vegetable stock because I did not have any. It was delicious!!


    2021-02-25 17:08:36

    has anyone tried this with frozen cauliflour?

  • Marlee

    2021-02-20 19:23:00

    Made exactly as written, with sliced mushrooms. Easy, attractive and delicious.

  • Lana

    2021-02-08 13:47:55

    The prep time was significantly longer than 5 minutes, and I even had the cauliflower broken into florets. And I had to use more liquid to get everything cooked to where I thought I thought it should be. I personally should have used more fresh time and garlic. My fiance thought it tasted healthy, and I liked it, too. I would probably make it again, but I would make those adjustments.

  • M Hartgrove

    2021-02-05 16:08:55

    I loved it!! I didn’t have vegetable broth so used beef broth and used more than the recipe called for.

  • Josie

    2021-02-03 21:01:10

    I loved it my husband loves muchrooms so easy so much flabor

  • Laurie

    2021-02-01 09:11:52

    Delicious! I made mine with ghee and really like how the cauliflower still has some crunch. Definitely will make this again.

  • Gayle J

    2021-01-31 18:00:50

    Excellent! Very easy to make and so meaty tasting. I used pearl onions and leeks (trying to use up things in the fridge), and cooked everything in my wok skillet. Softened the onions, then dumped the rest of the veggies in and cooked for about 10 minutes. I then added the veggie broth, stirred in and covered the pan with a lid to steam the veggies through. Removed the lid and cooked out the excess liquid. Will definitely serve this again!

  • Tammy

    2021-01-27 20:25:01

    Absolutely loved it!

  • Kim R

    2021-01-26 19:33:17

    Delicious and easy! I may try cooking the cauliflower BEFORE the mushrooms in order to get a softer cauliflower

  • Diane M

    2021-01-17 14:09:24

    I used baby Bella mushrooms and the cauliflower! Turned out great! Served over whole grain thin spaghetti. Really easy and delicious lunch.

  • Sonya

    2021-01-17 13:39:18

    Delicious! My husband and I are cutting out carbs as much as possible, will definitely make this recipe again!

  • April

    2021-01-15 09:06:14

    Can I sub the veggie stock? I know me, I'll open a box of stock for 2 tablespoons and then end up throwing away the rest of the box.

  • Kate

    2021-01-12 18:40:08

    This sounded really good. But I'm confused on what enormous skillet half a head of cauli plus all those mushrooms didn't overflow? The flavors were good, but all that with 2 tbsp stock...maybe I missed where it said split into 3 skillets brown and then combine. Reading previous posts I would have riced cauliflower and used less mushrooms.

  • Kim S

    2021-01-10 18:30:46

    This recipe was so easy and DELISIOUS! Very juicy and a really tasty meal in itself!

  • double t

    2021-01-09 09:09:55

    Great recipe - but too dry to my taste in the end. I made a quick roux dampen the sauce in the end, and I loved it! :-)

  • Karin

    2021-01-05 13:36:24

    I made this using cauliflower rice instead - turned out fantastic. Great recipe - thank you!

  • Christina

    2020-12-31 21:28:25

    Just made this - added kielbasa sausage to make it more of the main course, rather than a side dish for dinner. Wonderful flavor - very nice, one skillet dinner.

  • Franki

    2020-12-23 21:09:57

  • Indra

    2020-12-07 21:45:35

    My onions burned. I removed the mushrooms, dumped the diced brown onions, added a little more butter and added the mushrooms back in. I added new diced onions in the center of the pan once the mushrooms were nearly browned and then the cauliflower. Very hearty and tasty!

  • Diana

    2020-12-04 19:41:58

    Delicious! Will definitely make this again.
