RECIPE - Roasted Mushrooms (Baked Mushrooms)
These roasted mushrooms are such a deliciously easy side dish, perfect for serving for dinner with steak or roast chicken. Or use them to make an easy mushroom sauce for pasta. The mushrooms are dotted with butter and then baked in the oven with garlic and thyme. This creates a wonderful garlic butter giving them so my flavor and keeping them tender and juicy. This simple side is naturally gluten free, low carb and so easy that you'll wonder why you haven't cooked mushrooms in the oven before!

- 5 cups mushrooms - any mushrooms work. I use the standard white mushrooms you can buy at the supermarket
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3 stems thyme (or lemon thyme)
- 1/2 stick butter
- cracked black pepper
- Fresh parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 400ºF/200ºC.
Cut the mushrooms into quarters (or smaller if you are using the large field mushrooms) and place them into a baking dish. (you want them to be fairly tightly packed)
Finely chop the garlic and scatter it over the mushrooms.
Pull the leaves from the thyme, add them to the mushrooms.
Cut the butter into small cubes and add it to the mushrooms along with plenty of salt and black pepper.
Roast for 15 minutes, then carefully stir and roast for a further 10-15 minutes until the mushrooms are golden browned.
Scatter with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
