Parisian Roasted Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme

Parisian Roasted Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme

Paris in the winter can be cold and drizzly, but it is still the city of lovers–and this warming bistro-style recipe can help you and your sweetheart pretend you’re dining in the City of Light. A loaf of crusty French bread, a bottle of good red wine, and these appetizing little bites will set the mood for supper very nicely. Read the recipe here.

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.

Serves 4.

Sounds wonderful.

Also try powdered coriander seeds instead of the thyme, goes wonderfully with mushrooms.
