King Trumpet Mushroom Medley
1 pound King Trumpet Mushrooms, cleaned and sliced into 1/2-inch strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon thyme leaves, fresh or dried
Zest of one lemon
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Sauté Sensation: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced King Trumpet Mushrooms and sauté until golden brown, releasing their natural juices and developing a rich, caramelized exterior.
Garlic Infusion: Lower the heat to medium, and stir in the minced garlic. Allow the garlic to infuse its aromatic magic, creating a heavenly scent that signals the beginning of a flavor-packed adventure.
Herbal Elegance: Sprinkle thyme leaves over the mushrooms, adding a layer of herbal elegance that complements the inherent earthiness of King Trumpet Mushrooms.
Citrus Symphony: Zest a fresh lemon directly over the skillet, ensuring the mushrooms are kissed with a burst of citrusy brightness. Squeeze the juice of half the lemon into the mix, creating a delightful balance of acidity.
Seasonal Dance: Season the medley with salt and pepper to taste. Toss everything together, ensuring the mushrooms are evenly coated with the aromatic blend of herbs and citrus.
Oven Roast: Transfer the seasoned King Trumpet Mushrooms to the prepared baking sheet, spreading them out evenly. Roast in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until they achieve a golden perfection.
Garnish and Serve: Remove from the oven, garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness, and serve immediately.
