Ingredients:

  • 16oz white button mushrooms, cleaned
  • 1 shallots, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar {can sub. red wine vinegar}
  • 1/4 cup olive oil plus more for saute
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, diced
  • 1/4 tsp fresh thyme
  • salt/black pepper, to taste {about 1/4-1/2 tsp}

Directions:

  1. Add a swirl of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  
  2.  Add mushrooms and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. In a medium bowl add oil, vinegar, diced shallot, garlic, honey, and Dijon. 
  4. Whisk together then add fresh parsley and thyme and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the slightly cooled mushrooms to the bowl and stir to combine. You can also pour into a large mason jar.
  6. Cover mushrooms and refrigerate until chilled, at least an hour or up to overnight, before serving.
  7. Serve as an Antipasto appetizer or with salad or pasta. We love ours with Good Food Made Simple Cavatappi Bolognese or Hatch Chile Mac.
I used whole medium sized white button mushrooms for this recipe.
I also think baby bella mushrooms would be tasty. 
Wipe clean with a damp papertowel. 
Do not submerge in water or you will get soggy mushrooms when you cook them!
Once clean add to a large skillet with olive oil.
Heat mushrooms over medium high heat and cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
For the dressing you can use any vinegar you like. 
I personally like apple cider vinegar in my marinades and
 vinaigrettes but red wine vinegar is also good.  
I usually use onions but for this recipe I went with a finely chopped shallot. 
It has the perfect flavor and texture in the marinade without being overpowering. 
Fresh herbs are best for a marinade like this. I used both parsley and thyme. 
I knew I wanted to add some sweetness but I decided to skip the sugar this time and use honey. 
Love the end result!
In a medium bowl add oil, vinegar, diced shallot, garlic, honey, and Dijon. 
Whisk together then add fresh parsley and thyme and season with salt and pepper.
Add the slightly cooled mushrooms to a mason jar or large bowl.
Pour the marinade on top, stir to coat well, and cover. 
 Refrigerate until chilled, at least an hour or up to overnight, before serving.
Serve chilled or at room temp.
Serve as an Antipasto appetizer or with salad or pasta. 
I serve Marinated Mushrooms with Good Food Made Simple Cavatappi Bolognese 
or Hatch Chile Mac. There are never any leftovers!
