ROASTED PORTOBELLA MUSHROOMS
Roasted Portobella mushrooms with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. That’s all you need. Slice to serve as is, or slice and saute in a little more olive oil, salt and pepper! Serve as a side dish to pasta and rice dishes, or on a sandwich!
Makes 4 whole mushrooms
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
4 fresh whole Portobella mushrooms; wash, remove stems and trim caps
4 T. extra virgin olive oil
Place mushrooms gills side up on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle each lightly with salt and garlic powder.
Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 45 minutes or till mushrooms are fork tender in the middle.
Remove from oven, then when cooled to room temperature place on board, and slice each mushroom on a slant into 5-6 pieces, like you slice a flank steak.
In large skillet, over medium heat, fry mushroom slices in a little olive oil, on both sides, till lightly browned. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Don’t overcook. Turn heat off and remove to plate.
Notes: Either roasted, or roasted then sauteed, these steak-like mushrooms will elevate any meal! And it’s so easy.
Always select firm mushrooms, then use within 2-3 days for best flavor results.
