How to make roasted mushrooms?
Making bakes mushrooms is quite simple and fast, although the cooking time will always depend on the amount and kind of ingredients you’re using.
We, in order to make a recipe with no further complications, prefer to add a few ingredients that will be enough to give an exquisite flavor to the mushrooms.
However, the success of this recipe also includes the way you prepare the mushrooms before baking them.
Cleaning them well is needed. The right way of doing so is to cut part of the stem and wash them with our hands inside a container with water.
Then, throw away that water and wash them again, this time directly under the faucet, while rubbing a fine brush removing all their impurities, including the sand they might have.
Lastly, before moving forward to marinade them, rub lemon juice on them, this way we’ll make sure they won’t darken.
If you buy fresh mushrooms, we suggest you to save them in the fridge so they last for a longer time, up to 10 days, otherwise, you’ll have to consume them within 2 or 3 days.
Mushroom cook time
The cooking time of mushrooms is important because 50% of success of the recipe will depend on it.
In this case, since we’re going to cook them in an oven, we must be sure when they reach the adequate point so it doesn’t change its texture, flavor and aspect.
What we want is to get tender and brown roasted mushrooms, that’s why we’re going to bake them in one piece for 10 or 15 minutes depending on their size.
Their cooking time will also depend on if you want to make them in one piece or cut in slices.
