Garlicky Oven Roasted Mushrooms is a vegan, low-calorie, low carb side dish or appetizer. I prefer this recipe because it requires less oil and the mushrooms come out tender and juicy. This recipe is also paleo, and whole30 approved, just like my sheet pan Simple Baked Chicken Leg Drumsticks entree.
Garlicky Oven Roasted Mushrooms
My favorite thing about this recipe, besides omnomnom…these babies are oven-roasted, which generally need much less oil than mushrooms sautéed on the stove.
Why does this method require less oil?
In the oven, they baste in their natural juices, so you only need a light coating of oil, and they always come out perfectly tender and juicy.
When it comes to mushrooms, I prefer grilling any day.
But it’s not always grill:30, so this roasted mushroom recipe is perfect for my countertop oven during warmer months.
