Roasted Cremini Mushrooms, with Garlic and Parsley

Roasted mushrooms are a regular menu item during the winter. They have a deep earthiness that often reminds me of a forest floor strewn with pine needles.

This is a delicious appetizer or side dish, or can be paired with other dishes. For example, I sometimes feature roasted chanterelle mushrooms as a topping for ricotta gnocchi.

This recipe works with cremini mushrooms (which in reality are baby portobello mushrooms), but can be adapted for other varieties.

cremini mushrooms, sliced about 1/4″ thick
kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
olive oil
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
a generous handful of parsley, finely chopped
fresh lemon juice

Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Place mushrooms in a Pyrex baking dish or roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper, then drizzle lightly with olive oil. Mix well. Roast for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until mushrooms are sizzling.

Combine garlic and parsley in a small bowl; add lemon juice to taste. When the mushrooms are done, remove from heat and stir in the garlic mixture. Spoon onto individual plates, then serve at once.

Time: About 35 minutes, including prep.

  1. I am making ricotta gnocchi soon and will certainly remember your suggestion. I like mushrooms and usually cook them in a pan: I should try the oven the next time. Thank you so much for your contribution to WHB!
