Spicy Mushroom Stir Fry With Garlic, Black Pepper, and Chives [Vegan]




  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds (my addition)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 or 2 coarsely crushed red chilies
  • 1 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 pods of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups thickly sliced or quartered baby bella mushrooms (about 8 ounces)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped chives (optional)
  • 1/2 lime (optional)


  1. Heat the oil on medium heat for about 1 minute and add in the mustard seeds and the cumin seeds and wait until the mustard seeds begin to crackle.
  2. Add in the dried red chilies and the red onions and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until the onions wilt and begin to turn slightly crisp at the edges.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for another 4 minutes, adding in the salt.
  4. Add in the ground black pepper and the cilantro and chives and mix well.
  5. Squeeze in the lime juice and serve. This dish makes a wonderful side dish with almost anything.
