What do you do with a pound of mushrooms if you love mushrooms and want to highlight them in a dish all their own? You treat them like escargot (which I never have and never will eat) and you roast them in butter, garlic and capers. They feel so decadent and fancy, and have a wonderful woodsy bite! Another super simple and delicious recipe to add to your week night routine!
1 Pound Crimini Mushrooms, wiped clean with a moist towel
2 Tbsp Capers, rinsed and chopped
3 large Garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, cut into pieces (the original recipe calls for 3, if you prefer)
2 Tsp fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Parsley, chopped
1/8 Tsp Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Toss Mushrooms with Capers, Oil, Garlic, Sea Salt and Pepper and place in a baking dish (1 1/2- 2 qt sized. Top with pieces of Butter and roast. Stir occasionally until Mushrooms are golden and tender, and a bubbly sauce has formed in the bottom of the dish, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in Lemon Juice and Parsley and serve immediately! Enjoy with a nice piece of crusty bread!
