I hope you enjoy this recipe for Roasted Lemon Garlic Mushrooms!
What’s in this tasty side dish?
- Cremini mushrooms, which are also sometimes spelled crimini or called baby bella mushrooms.
- They are meaty in texture and savory in flavor. They are like white button mushrooms, but have richer and earthier notes.
- Garlic cloves and fresh rosemary: Both have a pungent and distinctive sharp flavor.
- These two ingredients compliment the mushrooms so well.
- Garlic will mellow and sweeten in flavor as it cooks.
- Rosemary has a piney aroma and earthy notes.
- Fresh lemon juice and zest: Adds the satisfying acidity to brighten the dish.
- Extra virgin olive oil: It binds the ingredients together, encourages extra browning, and roasty flavors.
- Salt and pepper: I like to use sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. They enhance all the other ingredients.
How do you make this mushroom recipe?
(Full ingredient amounts and instructions available in the recipe card down below)
Combine together the mushrooms, garlic, olive oil, rosemary, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a bowl.
- For the rosemary: Pinch the woody stem with your fingers and slide down the stem to remove the needle-like leaves before mincing with a sharp knife.
- For the lemon juice and zest: Zest the yellow skin and then roll the lemon against a flat surface before slicing the lemon in half to juice.
Spread the mushrooms onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer.
Roast for 20-25 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender. Best served right away. Enjoy!
