Ingredients
  • 4 cups (500g) Chestnut/button mushrooms, or combination of both
  • 3 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
  • Few sprigs Fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup (25g) Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 lemon Lemon zest
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C Fan, 220°C electric, 400°F or gas mark 6.
  2. Wash mushrooms and remove the stems. Give them a quick dry with some kitchen paper.
  3. Chop, (not too finely) and spread out evenly in a roasting dish.
  4. Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, thyme and toss with three tablespoons of olive oil and lemon zest.
  5. If using, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  6. After 10-15 minutes, check the mushrooms. Sometimes they release a lot of liquid and I usually drain as much of this as possible at this stage. I like them quite crispy!
  7. As all ovens vary, start checking them at 20 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
