1 pound small mushrooms
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
1. Preheat oven to 450F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
2. In a large bowl, combine mushrooms, oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to mix well. Spread evenly in prepared baking sheet.
3. Place on lowest rack in oven and roast 10 to 15 minutes, or until juice from mushrooms has almost evaporated. Turn mushrooms over and continue roasting for an additional 10 minutes, or until they are browned all over. Toss with garlic, vinegar, and thyme. Adjust seasoning and serve.
