German Christmas Market Recipes: Champignons mit Knoblauchsoße (Mushrooms in a Creamy Garlic Sauce)

Sautéed mushrooms, onions and a creamy garlic sauce.

     The Christmas Markets in Germany are a wonderful experience every Christmas season. They are full of great gifts and of course great food! Although a mug of Gluhwein (Mulled Wine with warm spices) and Bratwurst are always my favorites, these Mushrooms in a Creamy Garlic Sauce are a satisfying, comforting, warm meal during the cold weather at the markets.

Here’s my recreation of this festive treat!

Champignons mit Knoblauchsoße (Mushrooms in a Creamy Garlic Sauce)

  • 1.5 cups of whole white mushrooms
  • 2 TBSP finely chopped onion
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • 1/4 c thickened yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves (finely minced)
  • salt, pepper & dried oregano (to taste)
  • 1 scallion (finely chopped)
  • 1 TBSP fresh parsley finely chopped


In a large non-stick frying pan, add the olive oil, butter and mushrooms and sauté over medium heat.


Halfway through the cooking process, add the chopped onions and continue to cook them until the onions are tender. Remove from the heat and season with salt, pepper and dried oregano.


Meanwhile, combine the garlic and yogurt in a small sauce pan and sauté for just a few minutes until the garlic is fragrant. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.


To serve: plate the mushrooms and then pour over the garlic sauce. Garnish with the scallions and parsley.


Serve & Enjoy!


Guten Appetit!
