Garlic Parmesan Roasted Mushrooms
Yield 8-10 servings
Step up your side dish game with these Garlic Parmesan Roasted Mushrooms! Gluten-free and totally glorious.
- 32 oz mushrooms, cremini or white button
- 4-6 TBSP unsalted butter
- 6 cloves fresh garlic, smashed and finely minced
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp dried basil
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/8-1/4 tsp black pepper
- salt, to taste (see note below)
- 2-4 TBSP grated parmesan cheese
- optional chopped fresh parsley and/or thyme for a burst of color
- optional crushed red pepper flakes for some fiery heat
NOTE: Salt tends to be a very personal matter with recipes so I'm going to let you feel this one out based on preference. I used unsalted butter and added around 1/4 tsp sea salt to my mushrooms. There's also a saltiness to the parmesan cheese.
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Melt butter and add your smashed/minced garlic. Set aside.
- Trim the stems and clean mushrooms by wiping with a slightly damp paper towel. (Washing in water can cause them to soak up water and become soggy) I kept my mushrooms whole here but *totally* feel free to halve or quarter them if you prefer! If I have a few spare seconds I'll cut mine in half.
- Line mushrooms in even layer atop a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with garlic butter, tossing to coat.
- Season with oregano, basil, allspice, thyme, salt and pepper. Short on spices? Feel free to season with your favorite Italian seasoning blend (adjust s+p to taste based on the blend you choose)
- Roast for 20 minutes or until tender and golden. Add any additional seasoning you'd like and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
- Dive in while they're hot!
This recipe easily serves a crowd at about 8-10 servings but I’m not going to sit here and pretend that my husband and I didn’t eat the entire 2 pounds of mushrooms in a single sitting.
I regret nothing, I tell you! Nothing!
