Fast Sauté of Fennel and Mushrooms

  • 1 large fennel (with leaves)
  • 1/2 lb whole mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Thinly slice fennel, discarding any hard core.  Mince 1/2 cup of the leaves and set aside.  Slice mushrooms to same thickness as fennel.  Heat 1 Tbsp. butter and oil in a sauté pan.  Add mushrooms and cook over medium high heat until brown.  Remove and set aside.  Add remaining butter and fennel to pan.  Cook over medium heat until softened but still crunchy.  Add mushrooms, stir together.  Season with salt and pepper and stir in minced fennel leaves.
