This is my favorite way to prepare shiitake mushrooms!! I just roast them with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder!!! I love shiitakes because they have a low water content compared to some other mushrooms so they roast up really well! They are great alone or on sandwiches!!! Hope you like them!!!
- 3 (3 1/4 ounce) crates fresh shiitake mushrooms
- 3 tablespoons light olive oil
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt (or just shake it over the shrooms)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper (or just shake it over the shrooms too)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon garlic powder (or just shake this over them too!)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Use a damp paper towel to wash the tops of your mushrooms. (mushrooms are like sponges, you don't want to wash them in water because they will become watery and tasteless).
- Remove any large stems. (shiitake stems are sort of woody and tougher than the caps).
- Slice the mushrooms and place on a cookie baking sheet.
- Pour the olive oil over the slices and toss to coat with a spatula.
- Sprinkle the shrooms with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
- Give the cookie sheet a shake to spread all the shrooms out flat.
- Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Remove the mushrooms immediately from the baking sheet with a spatula.
- Enjoy on a sandwich or any way you want!
Very easy and a great way to prepare mushrooms. I used shiitakes and oyster mushrooms and added just a tiny dash of soy sauce at the end of cooking. Served with steamed peavine and grilled tofu.
This is really a simple, tasty way to prepare mushrooms. I used them on a large salad, and they got rave reviews. Will try with other mushrooms also. (Fresh shiitakes are a bit pricey here.) Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
