Quick Mushroom Sauce

Probably everyone knows how to prepare a mushroom sauce, however, I decided to share my recipe with a tiny twist. Due to several health issues my diet has to be based generally on low-fat meals and hence I try to avoid products such as thick cream, which is a common ingredient in mushroom sauces. To replace it, I used unsweetened yoghurt. On the other hand if you are vegan you might try this recipe by substituting milk-based product with soy milk!
What is more, I cherish spicy food thus to add more flavor to this sauce I added some chilli peppers but if you prefer softer tastes just omit this step!
Hope you will enjoy it :)


1 tbsp butter
400g mushrooms
1 onion
1 tsp dried chilli pepper 
3 tbsp of unsweetened yoghurt 
Salt and pepper to taste 


1. Melt the butter on a pan.
2. Dice the onions and add them onto the pan with butter. fry until golden.
3. Add crushed chilli pepper.
4. Chop up mushrooms (if you prefer to blend the sauce later on, like I did, the size doesn't matter).
5. Add them onto the pan and pour around 1/4 cup of water over them. Now cover the pan and let it simmer for around 6-7minutes.
6. After few minutes add yoghurt and stir well. Turn off the pan.
7. Transfer the sauce into a bowl and blend it to receive an even texture. (optional, I prefer when every thing is blended, the taste is then more vibrant and defined) .


  1. I don't have mushroom sauce often, but I remember that I sometimes like to drizzle it over steak! The next time I have some steak, I'll try out this recipe :D Thanks for the share! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
