Vegan Garlic Mushrooms with Toast
April 6, 2021
A delicious appetizer for vegan garlic mushrooms, with toast, optionally.
In this appetizer for 4 people, 3 mushroom varieties are used, which are 200g of button mushrooms, 200g of oyster mushrooms, as well as 300g of Portabello mushrooms. If you would like you can swap for 700g of any different variety of mushrooms.
The mushrooms will shrink down and brown from cooking and have a strong earthy taste.
A fun fact about button and Portabello mushrooms are that they are from same mushroom family, just at different stages of maturity. Button being younger and Portabello being older.
To make the garlic mushrooms, 6 garlic cloves are used, with 4 of them cooked at the start in the frypan and the other 2 cloves added for the last minute of cooking.
Start by preparing the mushrooms by halving the button mushrooms, trimming and disposing the rubbery ends off the oyster mushrooms and slicing the Portabello mushrooms.
Lemon juice is then sprinkled on the cut mushrooms and the mushrooms are then cooked in a frypan for 6 minutes with 4 garlic cloves, chilli and salt and pepper to taste.
Soy sauce and wine are added and the mushrooms are cooked for a further 2 minutes, then the remaining garlic is added as well as the parsley and cooked for 1 minute, then served with lemon zest on top and toast.
