Baked Mushrooms

These mushrooms have so much flavor and they are baked in the oven.  This dish is so easy to prepare and so delicious. I love mushrooms so  I could eat the whole pan myself!  They are great alone, in a wrap, on top of rice or with mashed potatoes.  They are a really pretty side dish.  No oil or liquid is needed because the mushrooms make their own juice.

RECIPE: Preheat oven to 375 and bake for 30-45 minutes (check for desired texture at 30 min)

Enough sliced mushrooms to fill a 9 by 11 glass baking dish (they shrink up)                                     White button or baby bella work best

1/2 sweet white onion chopped

2 cloves of garlic finely minced or pressed (spread evenly over the top)

very thin lemon slices (about 1/2 small lemon)

1 Tablespoon dried parsley flakes or 2 Tablespoons of fresh parsley

Salt and black pepper to taste

Assemble in order and bake for 30-45 minutes.  I like mine well done but it depends on how thinly sliced and the size of the mushrooms you use.

If you are going to salt them… they need 1-2 teaspoons of salt or 2 Tablespoons of low sodium Tamari. If you are salt free, just omit it.  The lemon does give a lot of lemony flavor so if you do not like lemon you may leave that out also.  A good shake of dried red pepper flakes adds some heat if you like things spicy.
