Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms – Gluten Free Side Dish Recipe

Yields: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound (16oz) mushrooms (white button, cremini, baby bella, or your preferred variety)
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon fresh parsley or thyme, chopped, for garnish

Instructions:

Preheat oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Prep the mushrooms:

  • Gently clean any dirt from the mushrooms with a damp paper towel.
  • Trim the ends of the mushroom stems.
  • If using large mushrooms, you may want to halve or quarter them for more even cooking.

Make the garlic butter:

  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Coat the mushrooms:

  • Place the mushrooms in a large bowl or directly onto a baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the garlic butter mixture over the mushrooms, tossing them to coat evenly.

Roast:

  • Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned. Flip or stir them halfway through for even cooking.

Garnish and serve:

  • If desired, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley or thyme.
  • Serve immediately as a delicious and healthy side dish.

Tips:

  • Don’t overcrowd: Avoid overcrowding the mushrooms on the baking sheet, or they will steam instead of roasting.
  • Adjust the garlic: Feel free to add more or less garlic to suit your tastes.
  • Flavor variations: Experiment by adding a squeeze of lemon juice, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, or a pinch of red pepper flakes for an extra kick.
  • Storing leftovers: Store leftover roasted mushrooms in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Enjoy!
