Garlic and Soy Roasted Mushrooms

Flat mushrooms are my preferred variety for this recipe. Swiss browns can also make a nice substitute. To achieve that really satisfying ‘meaty’ feel, it’s best to select medium – large mushrooms of roughly the same size.

Your tray size is also important. You want the mushrooms to fit snugly in the tray as they will shrink slightly during baking. I like my mushrooms to still hold their shape at the end of the cooking process, so l bake them for 20 minutes only. Add another 5 minutes to the cooking time if you’d like them a bit softer. 

I probably could have added a little extra liquid to the bottom of my tray to make it slightly more ‘saucy’. Regardless, you can see how juicy and plump the mushrooms are, thanks to the beautiful combination of their own juices mixed with butter, garlic, soy sauce and olive oil. I haven’t added salt to the list of ingredients as there is enough salt in the soy sauce. You could though, add a little sprinkling of pepper.

As a family, we do love our mushrooms, but it wasn’t until l was writing this post that l learnt just how nutritional they are. Here’s what l found:

  • Mushrooms are a good source of vitamin B2  and  B3.
  • They have dietary fibre, which is important for a healthy bowel.
  • Mushrooms are rich in minerals such as potassium (important for regulating blood pressure), phosphorus, zinc and selenium.

I can eat this dish at any time of the day, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Garlic and Soy Roasted Mushrooms are delicious on their own or can be served in a multitude of ways: with mashed potatoes, polenta, on toast, or as a side with a portion of chicken or red meat.

Either way, l think you’ll find it hard to stop at one.

Preparation Time: 5 mins     Cooking Time: 20 mins     Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 8 medium size flat mushrooms (roughly 450 g / 16 oz )
  • 3 tbsp / 50 g /1.5 oz melted butter (unsalted) (Note 1)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • extra olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / 350 F
  2. Drizzle or brush olive oil in a medium baking tray (roughly 1 tbsp) (Note 2)
  3. Place mushrooms in the tray (as pictured).
  4. Mix the butter, garlic, olive oil and soy sauce.
  5. Spoon a teaspoon of mixture over each mushroom. Make sure you spoon some over the edges too.
  6. Drizzle each mushroom with a little more olive oil.
  7. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes if you like your mushrooms to hold their shape and be a bit on the firm side. Bake an extra 5 minutes if you like your mushrooms a little softer.
  8. Scatter chopped chives or parsley over the mushrooms.

Notes

  1. I use unsalted butter as the soy sauce will provide enough salt for this dish.
  2. Adding olive oil prevents the butter from burning on the bottom of the tray. If it seems that the sauce at the bottom of the tray is drying out during baking, add a little water.

    I created this wonderful dish for my family who simply adore mushrooms. I loved the sound of this recipe and it seemed almost too simple – but I followed the directions carefully and it turned out scrumptious indeed! I served it with a salad for myself as a healthy meat free meal but my carnivorous relatives ate it accompanied with some bbq lamb cutlets – equally yummy.
    One small error I made. I used salted butter instead of the unsalted variety that Danielle recommends in her recipe and I have to agree it was a touch too salty. Next time I will follow Danielle’s EXACT advice!
