Bill Granger's Marinated Mushrooms

"Mushrooms are my favorite food and I especially like marinated mushrooms. It is really hard to get marinated mushrooms in the UK though. So, I was really happy to find this recipe in the BBC Good Food magazine. It is from the Australian TV cook, Bill Granger. I really like his simple and healthy recipes."

    A lovely, different way to prepare mushrooms. The oregano worked beautifully in this dish. In an attempt to make it healthier, I reduced the oil and upped the vinegar and after soaking for nearly 24 hours, the vinegar taste was a little strong but that's my fault, not the recipe's. I'll definitely make this often, probably adding minced garlic next time. I also used the vinegar mixture to marinate some tomatoes after the mushrooms and those came out lovely as well! Made for PAC Spring 2010.

    Easy to make and a fresh taste, but lacked a little something. Maybe I'll try a bit of garlic or chili next time.

    Great fresh flavor and so simple to make. I tagged this recipe for my DH who loves mushrooms and he really liked them. The directions didnt mention how much water to boil or salt to use so I filled a medium sized pot halfway with water and added a good palm full of salt. I had red wine vinegar flavored with garlic and used dried oregano instead of fresh. Loved the oregano flavor and the mushrooms would be great with a meat and cheese platter or with a good deli sandwich. Thank you Sarah_Jayne for posting, will make these again this summer.


I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
