Why this recipe works
- Dark soy sauce gives these oven roasted mushrooms a deep, dark, golden brown color. Dark soy sauce is thicker than regular soy sauce so it creates the perfect glaze that coats the mushrooms without making them soggy.
- Balsamic vinegar - when roasted, balsamic vinegar becomes more concentrated and slightly sweet. It gives these roasted mushrooms the perfect caramelized flavor.
- Make ahead - you can make these ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze them. Simply reheat in the oven or microwave until warmed through.
- Healthy and adaptable for dietary needs - this is a meat and dairy free recipe which makes it suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets, not to mention low carb and keto friendly. Replace the soy sauce with tamari to make this gluten free.
Ingredients you'll need
- Mushrooms - I used baby bella, otherwise known as crimini or baby portobello mushrooms. You can substitute white button mushrooms as well. I prefer to keep them whole but you can slice the mushrooms too for faster roasting.
- Garlic - use fresh garlic if possible, but you can substitute with powdered garlic as well.
- Dark soy sauce - dark soy is recommended in this recipe because it gives a nice dark color to the mushrooms and is slightly thicker. Substitute with regular soy sauce, tamari, or liquid aminos.
- Fresh herbs - parlsey, basil, thyme, rosemary.
Step by step instructions
- Clean your mushrooms and trim off the edges of the stem.
- Toss the mushrooms with oil, garlic, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar (if using).
- Lay them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until slightly shriveled and golden brown.
- Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
Add more vegetables to these roasted crimini mushrooms! Asparagus, broccoli, zucchini, onion, potatoes, and carrots are all great additions to these baked mushrooms!
Simply double the flavorings and bake at the same temperature until tender.
Frequently asked questions
