mushrooms, vintage recipe
Whole, small-medium mushrooms
(Button or Portobella)
Fresh lemon juice
Fresh parsley, minced
(alt: roasted red pepper)
Fresh garlic, peeled and minced
Table or Sea salt
Ground black pepper
White distilled vinegar
Brush mushrooms with a dry towel and remove stems. If they're bigger than bite-sized, cut them in half.
Add marinade ingredients to a large bowl and whisk; set aside until mushrooms are ready.
Add mushrooms and lemon juice to a saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil then simmer only 1 minute and remove from heat. Strain out the liquid and transfer mushrooms to the marinade.
Allow mushrooms to sit at room temperature for about 1 hour in the marinade order to absorb flavor, then refrigerate them 2-3 hours before serving.
Note: "Prep Time" is noted as 2 hours, which is primarily the marinating time. These mushrooms can be prepped in less than 10 minutes, but you need them to marinate about 2 hours before serving.
