Vegan Mofo: Roasted Garlic Mushrooms

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with stuffed mushrooms because I love the stuffing but I dislike the fact that the mushrooms often come half raw out of the oven. From now on I will be using the method from this recipe for all the stuffed mushrooms recipes in the future.

Even though technically these aren't stuffed mushrooms, I can still bake the mushrooms in the pan beforehand, preventing them from coming out raw. I have made this dish two times already. The first time as a side dish and a 2nd time as an evening snack. I really love the flavours of this classic combination :) The original recipe is from Cakes Cottage.

Roasted Garlic Mushrooms: (serves 2)
- 16 mushrooms, stalks cut level
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
- 0.5 tsp garlic powder
- 5 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
- 1.5 tbsp lemon juice

Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees. In hot oil, fry the mushrooms, cap-side-down, for about 3 minutes. Line the mushrooms in an oven dish with the caps down. Mix together the thyme, butter, garlic, garlic powder and lemon juice. Cover each mushroom with a bit of the garlic butter and press some breadcrumbs on top. Bake for about 15 minutes, or store them in the fridge to warm up later.

Greta on it's own as a snack, or serve them with some baked potatoes and a meat replacement like above to make a meal.
