Marinated Mushrooms





From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I always try to include these mushrooms with my antipasti platters. They marry well with cubes of cheese, assorted olives, roasted peppers and assorted sliced salumi. Try them and you find yourself in a true, vegan and diet friendly, nosher's paradise. The mushrooms are exceeding easy to put together and are budget friendly to boot. I also like to serve these as a salad topping or as a first course for casual company meals. Flavor is best if they are left to chill overnight. Here's the recipe for one of my easiest, and best, appetizers. I hope you'll try it.

Marinated Mushrooms...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh cremini or white button mushrooms
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 cloves fresh minced garlic
1/4 cup minced red onion
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano or marjoram
2 tablespoons fresh minced parsley
Kosher salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon each black peppercorns and coriander seeds
Optional garnish: 1 tablespoon drained, chopped pimento

Directions:

Clean mushrooms and remove stems. Simmer mushroom caps in salted water for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, sugar, garlic, red onion, oregano, parsley, salt, peppercorns and coriander. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving. Garnish with pimento for color. Yield: 4 servings.

Really enjoy your posts. The mushrooms look incredible. Reading thru the recipe, I don't find parsley listed as an ingredient but it does appear in the instructions as an addition. How much to add? Fresh? Also, the red "flakes" in the photo do not look like red onions, and I can find no other ingredient that would be that bright, candy apple color. Is there another addition? Thanks!

Mary said...

A thousand thanks, olegraymare. I've corrected the recipe. It now includes fresh parsley in the ingredient list. The red flakes are actually pimento pieces that I added while trying to take a decent picture. The mushrooms looked drab and something was needed to brighten the photo. I've also included an optional pimento garnish in the ingredient list. Again my thanks. Have a great New Year.
