Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms
1 pound Chestnut or Pioppino mushrooms, cleaned and halved
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Prepare the Mushrooms: Clean the mushrooms thoroughly and cut them in half. If they are large, you can quarter them for more even cooking.
Make the Garlic Butter: In a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and stir well. Let the garlic infuse into the butter for a few minutes.
Coat the Mushrooms: Place the halved mushrooms in a mixing bowl. Pour the garlic butter over the mushrooms, ensuring they are well coated. Toss the mushrooms to evenly distribute the garlic butter.
Season: Sprinkle salt and pepper over the mushrooms to taste. Remember that the butter already contains some salt, so adjust according to your preference.
Transfer to Baking Dish: Transfer the garlic butter-coated mushrooms to a baking dish, spreading them out in a single layer.
Roast in the Oven: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and roast the mushrooms for about 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown and tender. You can toss them once or twice during cooking for even browning.
Garnish: Once the mushrooms are out of the oven, sprinkle fresh chopped parsley over them for a burst of color and added freshness.
Serve and Enjoy: Serve the Garlic Butter Roasted Chestnut Mushrooms as a side dish or a flavorful topping for pasta, rice, or crusty bread.
