Beautiful Baked Mushrooms
A delicious side dish to compliment your main course.
4 cups (500g)
Chestnut/button mushrooms, or combination of both
Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup (25g)
Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 200°C Fan, 220°C electric, 400°F or gas mark 6.
Wash mushrooms and remove the stems. Give them a quick dry with some kitchen paper.
Chop, (not too finely) and spread out evenly in a roasting dish.
Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, thyme and toss with three tablespoons of olive oil and lemon zest.
If using, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
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!
As all ovens vary, start checking them at 20 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
