Add a creative twist to your meal with these vegetarian scallops made from trumpet mushrooms. The mushroom scallops are browned and cooked until tender. A drizzle of nutty, caramelized brown butter and vibrant thyme send them over the top!

Scale
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 16 ounces trumpet mushrooms, about 2
  • 4 sprigs of thyme, plus extra for garnish

  4. Add the mushroom scallops. Spoon half of the brown butter over the scallops and cook 3 to 5 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown. Flip and spoon the remaining brown butter over the top of each. Cook 3 to 5 more minutes, until tender.
  5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme leaves before serving.
