Add onion, garlic, mushrooms, red pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, nutmeg, and paprika; cook, stirring often, until vegetables soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until golden brown, about 10 more minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a bowl and set aside.
