I’m really loving shiitake mushrooms these days. It’s so versatile…goes with so many different cuisines. And it’s yummy too. This is a super simple recipe that’s almost too simple. But simple is good.
Garlic Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms
- shiitake mushrooms
- minced garlic
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
Soak dry shiitake mushrooms in water for 30 minutes or as package indicates. Drain and squeeze excess water. Mix mushrooms with minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place mushrooms on a baking sheet and bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
I got this at Costco. I don’t remember how much it was, but it was pretty inexpensive.
Soak the mushrooms for about 30 minutes. Get those guys hydrated!
After soaking, check that they’re soft enough. Then rinse and drain.
Mince some garlic (lots of it), and throw them into a bowl with the mushrooms. And then do them a favor by adding olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Mix, mix, mix. Everyone’s happy now.
Place them on a baking sheet and into the oven at 400° for 20 minutes.
And then after 20 minutes, thank yourself.
You can use them as a side, but I chose to use them as a bed for my meat dish…which you will see later. I guess it’s still a side.
