    Add the mushrooms, toss very well to coat in the oil, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are cooked through and lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the salt and cook for 2 minutes more, then stir in the butter and epazote until the butter has melted. Season to taste with salt.
