Slow Cooker Herb Mushrooms

Slow cooked mushrooms covered in a rich, creamy sauce is a filling side dish fit for both Paleo-lovers and vegetarians. These savory bites are enhanced by the taste of rich fats, like coconut milk and ghee. Vegans can also enjoy this dish by replacing the ghee with another type of cooking fat.

The ghee gives the mushrooms a slightly nutty flavor and brings out the flavor of the herbs. The coconut milk and vegetable stock adds a savory and rich flavor, too. Be sure to buy a full-fat can of coconut milk, not the lite stuff!

Serve these with a roasted chicken, pork tenderloin or even pour them over a bed of spaghetti squash “pasta”!
