Roasted Garlic and Herb Mushrooms are an easy and delicious side bursting with flavors of garlic and herbs. Due to the addition of cheese, it gets a nice cheesy texture and also goes well as a topping or filling for an open sandwich.
Well, Mushrooms were always an experiment for me as growing up we never had this and it was sort of an exotic dish for us. Earlier whenever I use to bring mushrooms I use to wash them, and completely remove the black part called Gills. It resulted in hardly anything left. To date, I am a bit uncomfortable in eating that part. So most of the time I use the button Mushrooms. More about Edible Mushrooms here.
Well, there are many different types of mushrooms available and there are some good recipes with them especially stuffing of the mushrooms. But currently, I choose not to experiment much due to the black gills. Well, someday I am going to I know, until then I enjoy them in the restaurants :D.
Button Mushrooms are also known as common mushrooms, cultivated mushrooms, table mushrooms, and champignon mushrooms. They are native to grasslands in Europe and North America. The reason I choose these is they are easy to cook and can go in almost any dish from soups, stews, and stir-fries. Secondly, since they are immature and white, they do have fewer black gills. And I am happy to eat them without the black gills :D.
When picking mushrooms try to pick the ones which have no signs of bruising or sliminess. They should have a crisp look.
They tend to absorb water when soaked in water. They also get mushy due to this. So it is best to rinse them and wipe them clean with a damp cloth or a tissue. They are best when they are crisp.
Recipes with mushrooms
I try to add them in my soups like this Thukpa (Vegetable Noodle Soup) or in a simple stir fry. They go well in noodles and pasta too. I also make a quick Indo-Chinese style stir fry where In I generally add this mushroom, corn, baby corn, peppers, etc. Another dish that I love is Spicy Garlic Butter Mushrooms in Indian Style. It goes well as a side with Simple Dal and Rice.
Nowadays I am hooked on this Easy Vegan Pad Thai, where I am using Shikate Mushrooms along with different veggies. It is a quick and simple stir-fried noodle made using vegetables, sauces, and gluten-free Rice Noodles.
I love roasting vegetables as they add a nice taste to the dish, are light on the tummy, and are perfect for parties. I would highly recommend trying this Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables (Oven Method Included) or this Air Fryer Whole Sweet Potatoes (Oil-Free).
Roasted Garlic and Herb Mushrooms
Today’s recipe is simple garlic and herb-roasted mushrooms. The mushroom is quoted with garlic, herbs, vinegar, and cheese. One can simply play around with the ingredients. If you do not like oregano skip it, add basil or any other herb of your liking. It is then roasted in the oven and 20-25 minutes. A delicious side is ready within no time. I enjoyed it as a layer on my bread and it was a complete meal for me. And yes do not discard the extra sauce if you have any left, just spread it on bread or use it as a dip for your chips.
