  • 2   tsp  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2   small cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2   pound(s)  fresh mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 1/2   Tbsp  balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2   cup(s)  cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4   tsp  dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/8   tsp  freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Directions
