Prep your mushrooms:

  1. Clean mushrooms by lightly removing dirt with a damp paper towel. 
  2. Dice into ½ inch cubes.

Let’s get cooking:

  1. In a pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add mushrooms and let brown undisturbed, about 3 minutes. 
  2. Toss mushrooms and continue to sauté until deep brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the onions and green beans. Cook until they’ve softened, stirring often, about 2 minutes.
  4. Turn heat down to medium, add the Omsom starter, and stir to evenly coat everything in the skillet. 
  5. Add red peppers (optional) and roughly hand tear the basil into the skillet. Turn off heat and stir to wilt the basil.
  6. Salt to taste and top with fried egg (optional).
  7. You’re done! Serve with some of our suggested favorites. Enjoy!
