Today’s recipe is a very simple one. I have been wanting to roast vegetables in the oven and then I decided on roasting mushrooms when I saw a packet of button mushrooms at the farmers market. This has a simple dressing and the taste was out of the world!
We had it as a appetizer and once again I wished I had made more of this. The mushrooms shrink up once cooked and it looked like we just had a taste of it.So if you are planning to make this for a crowd you will have to use lots and lots of mushrooms!
Check out my other bakes in Fire up your oven series….
Button mushrooms-200 grams
Butter- 2 tablespoons
Grated garlic-2 flakes
Red chili flakes- 1/2 teaspoon
Finely chopped coriander- 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste [skip is using salted butter]
In a bowl take the softened butter, salt, garlic,coriander and chili flakes and mix well.Wash and clean the mushrooms and place them on a baking dish. It is ok to squish them / place them packed together as they will shrink on cooking
Apply the butter mixture on the button mushrooms and set aside for 15 minutes.
Place the baking dish in a pre heated oven and bake at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes or till the mushrooms are soft. While cooking you will notice that the mushroom sweats and the tray is watery. Most of the liquid will dry up on further baking or drain the excess liquid and serve the mushrooms. The taste of the liquid was awesome!
Serve as an appetizer / side
- You can use regular mushrooms as well.
- Choose even sized mushrooms so that they will cook uniformly.
- Oven timings will vary on the size of the mushrooms used.
- Add more flavorings to the butter to suit your taste.
