How can I describe this dish? It’s absolutely delicious! I love mushroom stew, but I always had the feeling that something is missing. I’ve tried many combos: mushroom stew with chicken or with pork, creamy mushrooms or creamy mushrooms with chicken. These dishes were all good and tasty but this mushroom stew with olives is definitely a hit! You must give it a try!
This mushroom stew with olives is also quick and incredibly easy to make. The most “difficult” part is to slice the mushrooms :). Then you have to sauté the onion, toss in the slice mushrooms and in less than 30 minutes you can set the table. Meanwhile you can grill some chicken and you have a delicious and nourishing meal.
I used fresh button mushrooms for this delicious stew but you can use your favorite mushrooms. Also, if you prefer, you can replace black olives with green olives.
