15 Minutes Mushroom Teriyaki

15 minutes mushroom teriyaki is a perfect choice when you are busy but still want to enjoy a delicious healthy vegan meal with minimal pantry ingredients.

I feel sluggish in summer and I tend to cook really simple dishes, like this 15 minutes mushroom teriyaki, so I can be in and out from the kitchen as fast as possible. Although we are making a teriyaki dish, there is no need to buy a bottle of teriyaki sauce. As long as you have soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar, you can make your own teriyaki sauce at home.

You can use any mushroom

I use super common white button mushroom to make this mushroom teriyaki dish since this is the most widely available mushroom. Of course you can use other varieties of mushroom too, such as king oyster, fresh shiitake, and fresh portobello. When you use king oyster or fresh portobello mushrooms, this can easily be made into a main dish.

Playing around with the garnishes

I always stock fresh scallions in my refrigerator, so chopping some up to garnish this easy mushroom teriyaki dish is a no brainer. Another possible garnish is to use lemon zest, and even squeeze some of the fresh lemon juice to the finished dish to make an instant teriyaki ponzu mushroom dish!

    I'm not a mushroom fan, but my mom's theory is the more mushrooms, the better. It sounds good and I'll pass it on to her.

    Anything that is ready in just 15 minutes is good with me. You can't beat a homemade Teriyaki sauce.

  • Anita Hartati Anita Hartati says:

    Hi Anita, I found your blog and it is a total gem!! I am loving all of your recipes. They are absolutely delicious and easy to make. I fell in love again in Indonesian cuisine because of you! I used Lentil instead of mushroom and my son (who hated lentil) is now converted! It was delish. Thank you for sharing your passion in cooking.

    • Anita Anita says:

      Thank you so much for trying out my recipes. I've never made a lentil teriyaki, and now I'm curious how it will taste. :)

  • Bob LaPointe Bob LaPointe says:

    I got addicted to these before Covid when Publix had a olive and mushroom 🍄 bar? These where served cold. I just wondered if you can cook them like this then refrigerate them and eat them cold??

    • Anita Anita says:

      Hi Bob, I put this in my lunch box with rice all the time, and it's delicious at room temperature. I'm not too sure how it will taste when it's cold as in out-from-the-fridge cold though.

  • Anne Anne says:

    We love mushrooms ! Was wondering if I can marinate some portobello mushrooms overnight and use it as a vegetarian teriyaki burger?

    • Anita Anita says:

      Hi Anne, as long as you slice the portobello mushrooms thinly (~ 1/2 inch thick), you can cook immediately without marinating. I'm not sure how it will perform if you cook a whole portobello mushroom without slicing though, but I'm guessing as long as you can cook it thoroughly first, you can always cook the teriyaki sauce separately and glace the cooked mushroom with the teriyaki sauce.

    • Ben Ben says:

      Make sure to marinate them gill side up. Also, you can poke the portobello mushrooms full of holes using a fork. The marinade will soak in even better. Never hurts to try!
