Meaty Mushroom: Shiitake

Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms

I’ve posted about mushrooms before.  Yes, I do love them and in so many ways.

I just bought two big batches of shiitake mushrooms and decided to easily oven roast them.  The shiitake mushroom is quite satisfying in any dish and is often used as a substitute for meat in many vegetarian dishes.  I love their chewiness and they absorb flavor so well.

I normally would use Asian style herbs and flavors on these mushrooms but just simply put together a basic fresh minced garlic, olive oil, oregano and red pepper flake combo.

I also added the same herb mix to a chicken breast that I roasted as well.  Super simple, just the way I like it!

You can put these on the grill too!

Process:  add mushrooms and onions to a large bowl; add the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and mix; add this mixture to the mushrooms; roast seasoned mushrooms in a shallow pan for 15 minutes at 400 F.
