Sautéed Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme (Spain)

Mezes and tapas are one of the reasons I love eating the Mediterranean Diet.  I always order some version of Sautéed Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme whenever I make it to a tapas restaurant.  It is a dish that goes with almost any other type of food from beans to chicken to fish.  Of course, this recipe has lots of olive oil so you can sop up the flavorful juices with bread.   This dish goes very nicely with Baked Cod with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Olives or Chicken Souvlaki with Grilled French Bread and Tzatziki.  Enjoy!
