The beauty of this recipe is that these mushrooms are like a blank canvas that can easily be customized. Here are some ideas:

  • Add Veggies. Feel free to add broccoli or Brussels sprouts; they all go great together.
  • Alter Seasoning. You can replace or add more seasonings like oregano or chili flakes to modify the taste to your liking.
  • Use flavored butter. Garlic butter, chili butter, or even some truffle butter transform this dish into something extravagant.

Storage instructions

  • To store. Despite their delicate nature, they can still be stored in your fridge for up to 24 hours by placing them in airtight containers. 
  • To freeze. Place the cooked and cooled mushrooms in a shallow container and store them in the freezer for up to one month.
