Herb Roasted Mushrooms

This is my absolute favorite way to cook mushrooms. Truth be told, I don’t think that you necessarily need to cook mushrooms for them to be delicious. My better half on the other hand is not the biggest mushroom fan. He always picks them out when I put them on a salad or pizza. So if I’m going to take the giant step and serve them as an actual side dish with dinner, then I’ve got to dress them up a bit. This recipe is the perfect way to do just that.

Slow roasting mushrooms, or any kind of vegetables for that matter, brings out all of their wonderful flavor. So much so that you barely need any seasonings to go with them. Take these mushrooms for instance. With just a sprinkling of herbs, some salt and pepper, a drizzle of olive oil and a little lemon juice for brightness, these mushrooms shine

    Ooohh I think a drizzle of a nice wine cream sauce would be great with these mushrooms!

    Could you make these with dried herbs instead?

      Tina, you could use dried herbs instead if you like. I don’t see a problem with that.

    My boyfriend is not a fan of mushrooms either. Unfortunately, even dressed up he will pick around them…. I doubt I can slip this one by him…but they look so good, I’d be willing to try!!!

    I adore mushrooms and my choice way of cooking them is sauteeing them in a red wince sauce. But I’ll have to give these a try!

    Oh my, I bet if you deglazed that pan with a wee bit of white wine you’d get a lovely little sauce to drizzle on the mushrooms. Must try this pronto.
