Roasted Garlic Mushroom


There are days when I like to spend hours in the kitchen chopping.. blanching.. sauteing.. cleaning and back to some more chopping. Then, there are days when I like to make a quick meal and give my feet some rest.

It was one such day – a sunny afternoon and my feet called for rest. There were lot of options for lunch, like one pot meal or sandwich or may be just dial-in for some pizza. Somehow, none of those options looked exciting and my feet were still stubborn.

Well, you just can’t sit there eating nothing!

So, after a lot of thought, I decided to make a one pot rice meal. Since that doesn’t take time to cook, I decided to make it just before lunch time. Arvind comes home for lunch .. so yeah, we have a lunch time :)

It was not that late in India and I decided to spend some time talking to Mom.. then pampered my feet with some massage.. after which, I started blog-hopping and my recent addiction – tweeting :) As I was glancing through, I came across a mushroom dish and it caught my complete attention. It was simple, nothing to fancy and still, I couldn’t help drooling at the photo. So,  checked the recipe and it was just too simple, awsm! Ok, there was an hour left in my hand and mushroom were resting in the refrigerator, so why not, yeah!

10 minutes prep time plus a few more for the photo-shoot, 20 minutes to cook in the oven, 10 mins to click click and after that, it was time for the moment of truth!

At every bite, I was wondering why didn’t I come across this dish before.. well, better late then never :)

The mushroom was soft but not soggy. You could still bite and enjoy the texture with that garlic butter juice which was filled with so much flavor. Take a  nice piece of bread and scoop through every bit of that juice. For all you mushroom lovers, you got to try this simple flavorful dish. Just make sure you have some bread to bite with it.

This will serve 2. Recipe adapted from here

Ingredients :

  • 1 lb mushrooms (I used white button mushrooms and cut it in halves)
  • 3  garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbs butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbs chilly flakes
  • 1 tbs lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup white wine (Use a good white wine that you like to drink. Also, you can avoid wine completely and it will still taste amazing)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro or parsley, chopped

Directions :

Preheat the oven to 450 F.

Toss mushrooms with  garlic, olive oil, wine,chilly flakes, salt and pepper in a baking dish.

Spread the cubed butter on top and roast it for about 10 mins. Take them out of the oven and give them a toss.

Place it back in the oven and roast for another 10 mins or until the mushrooms are tender.

Add the lemon zest, lemon juice and cilantro. Then, mix them properly.

Serve it hot with some bread of your choice.

i love the whole idea of mushrooms and garlic cos its just a brilliant combo, but im not too sure about the butter. As much as i know it will taste mindblowingly awesome, I think il probably try it with just olive oil..
i love all the pics… :)

sangeeta says:

Hmm ..better late than never . This one will be a hit at my place too.

Manu says:

AMAZING dish and AMAZING pictures! I too am a mushroom addict! I could it all kinds of mushroom made in any way!!! hehehehe So glad to find a quick recipe that tastes great!

Kankana, even I think that the simplicity and the flavour of the dish is just right for a lazy summer afternoon. You do great photography…just spotted this great pic on Tastespotting. Do give me some tips on photography, I am poor in that, you know.

All-in-all, a recipe worth a try!

Just found your site from foodgawker, not just because your photo was awesome and mouthwatering, but because I love mushrooms and I love ease. I thought it was soup and think I love it more because it’s not. Just thinking, however, do you think with a splash of stock, it might just qualify as soup too?

Kankana says:

I guess so :) Give it a try and let me know!

Manju says:

i am not a big fan of mushrooms, cos of the chewy texture, but yay! they look sooo good, that i might just eat them anyway :)

aipi says:

dewdle says:

I make a very similar topping to go over brie warmed between soft and runny, with crusty bread. But I’ve been sauteing the mushrooms. I’ll try them your way next time, thanks!

Hi Kankana! Wow I love mushroom! It’s something that I can keep eating and it’s very interesting how mushroom gives flavors since they look so simple! I love your roasted garlic mushroom. I know for sure that I won’t stop eating. Such an addicting taste!

tigerfish says:

This is easy to do! I am into super-easy cooking for summer. :)
Seems that there is quite some gravy for this dish. Is that derived from olive oil or lemon juice or both? ;p

Kankana says:

Thanks :) Yeah the gravy is all from the butter, oil,lemon juice and mushroom. No broth or water added at all :)

Oh, it’s so pretty…and I could devour this with some nice toast or bread slices like you’ve got. Yum 😀

Tiffany says:

10 minute prep? YES please! 😀

such a short time to prepare and mushroom with garlic this is for me…looks amazing!!

Hi Kankana..
Thanks for sharing this recipe… the pics look great, and I made this last night.. it was awesome… my hubby is not a big fan of mushrooms, so for him, I followed the same process but with a mix of “cauliflowers and peas”.. it worked… we loved both the dishes… so I thought I would let you know… thanks again for the recipe..

I usually make creamy soup but this is so much better Kankana, and your photos are so good that making me want eat some right now..I am huge mushroom fan:)) I could eat them every day ahahaa
