Garlic Roasted Breaded Mushrooms

Perhaps I'm on a roll! I had a bunch of mushrooms left over from some soup I made the other day, and needed to use them tonight. We always keep onions and garlic around, and all the rest of the ingredients are pantry staples. It smelled so good, even before we put it in the oven! Seth said it smelled like an Italian restaurant. Mushrooms aren't Seth's favorite, but he said that this is the best way to eat mushrooms that he's tried. That's a compliment to remember :)

Garlic Roasted Breaded Mushrooms 

Serves 4-6

    • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced (about 4 teaspoons)
    • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
    • 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or more to taste)
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 Tb. melted margarine (or you could use olive oil)
    • 1 Tb. ground flaxseed (any health food store has it usually in bulk) mixed with 3 Tb water (until egg white consistency)
    • 1/2 a medium onion (white, sweet or yellow), finely diced
    • about 5 cups baby bella (or any type) mushrooms, wiped clean
    • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
    • 2 Tb. nutritional yeast (any health food store has it usually in bulk)
    • 1 Tb. lemon juice
    • Chiffonade fresh spinach, parsley, or basil for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (rack in the center)
2. Then in a large bowl, combine all ingredients except onion and mushrooms. Whisk together, then add mushrooms and onions and toss until everything is coated in the dressing.
3. Pour mushrooms into a (lightly greased) large  baking dish in a single layer and roast in the oven for 15 minutes.
4. In a small bowl, mix topping ingredients with a fork.
5. Stir the mushrooms, spread Panko bread crumbs over them and continue roasting until Panko is golden brown and mushrooms are tender (10-15 more minutes)
6.Garnish with fresh herbs or spinach
1. This is a very flavorful dish. It would be excellent if you serve it over a grain like quinoa, rice or cous cous, and a green salad on the side you can make it the main dish.
2. I served this with a spaghetti squash (that we grew in our garden, whoohooo!)mixed with spaghetti sauce from a jar. It made for a pretty easy meal :)I'll post about making spaghetti squash sometime in the future.
