My husband’s co-worker struck again! I woke up one day and we had tons more mushrooms sitting on the kitchen counter. So of course I had to find something new to do with them.
The mushroom soup I made was heavenly, but we’re in the middle of a sweltering heatwave, and I just could not. do. soup. So I found this recipe for baked mushrooms from Damn Delicious and I decided to tweak it a little bit to meet our taste buds.
This recipe is super quick and easy, and it makes a great veggie side item for dinner. Hey, it even microwaves pretty well for leftovers as well! My only regret is that I didn’t make more of them because they were so delicious.
- 4 cups mushrooms, thinly sliced (I have no idea how many pounds this is, but it’s just enough to cover a cookie sheet.)
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 and 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided
- Salt and pepper to taste
Spread out the sliced mushrooms on a cookie sheet or baking pan and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, dried thyme, salt and pepper, and 1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese. Place into a 400 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, mix, and add remaining 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese. Bake for 5 more minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
See, I told you this recipe was super easy! It’s amazing how delicious such an easy recipe can be, right?
