Marinated Mushrooms – Give them a Go!


Carole's Chatter: Marinated Mushrooms - Give them a go!


For a change up, I did some simple marinated mushrooms. 

I used white button mushrooms.  If they had been small ones I would have left them whole.  I quartered mine and took out their stalks.  No washing of them – mushrooms need to be brushed or wiped clean rather than washed.  The commercial ones you buy are almost spotless anyway.

Then put your mushrooms into a small saucepan along with:

1 chopped tomato – I didn't take the skin off through laziness but I did cut out the hard bit where the stalk was.
1/3 of a red chilli finely diced – I left the seeds in but you could leave them out or omit the chilli altogether
2 cloves of garlic – grated on a microplane – watch your fingers – they won't add to the marinade!
Zest of a lemon
Juice of ½ a lemon
¼ cup of olive oil

Bring all this lot to the boil, cover the pot and turn it down to a simmer for 15 minutes.

Pour it all into a clean jar and store it in the fridge.  Serve it at room temperature.  It's better left for a day or 2 before eating.
