Garlic Roasted Mushrooms are super easy and baked in the oven for a dinner or game day recipe that is healthy, full of fresh flavors, and ready in minutes. Serve these healthy, baked garlic mushrooms with your favorite proteins, or keep the whole meal plant-based.

This recipe contains olive oil instead of butter and makes this recipe vegan and completely dairy-free!

Baked mushrooms with garlic are simple to prepare for any occasion–casual or special. We like to switch things up with different varieties of mushrooms whenever we are feeling more creative than usual.

These roasted mushrooms will pair well with almost anything. We usually switch back and forth between these baked mushrooms or Garlic Roasted Broccolini because both are so mouthwatering and delicious–prepare them at the same time!

WHY THESE HEALTHY GARLIC ROASTED MUSHROOMS ARE THE BEST

Garlic Roasted Mushrooms RecipeIngredients For Baked Garlic Mushrooms

  • Button Mushrooms: Brown button mushrooms are subtle in flavor and can be made with almost any kind of flavors. Since these kinds of mushrooms are so neutral, they are great for absorbing up any extra flavors. You can use portobello, shiitake, morel, cremini, etc.
  • Olive Oil: Rich olive oil is fragrant and full of rich flavors for the mushrooms. We highly suggest using a good quality oil for these baked mushrooms so they taste the best.
  • Garlic Cloves: Whole garlic cloves are roasted in the oven with the mushrooms and allow the mushrooms to be extra savory and bold with flavors of garlic. In a pinch, garlic powder will work.
  • Salt and Pepper: Kosher sea salt and black pepper give these mushrooms a little extra flavor and make them much more enjoyable. Feel free to adjust the seasoning as needed.
  • Thyme: Optional, but fresh thyme adds a different element to this recipe and tastes amazing atop the mushrooms. Try rosemary, parsley, cilantro, or oregano in place of the thyme.

HOW TO ROAST MUSHROOMS

  • Mix Ingredients: First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, mix the cleaned mushrooms with some minced garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Bake Mushrooms: Next, place all of the ingredients on a clean baking sheet and arrange everything in a single layer. Roast the mushrooms for twenty minutes and remove from the oven once done.
  • Serve: Top the baked mushrooms with the optional thyme and enjoy! Adjust the salt and pepper as needed.

      Hi Fizza. What you can actually do first is boil the potatoes just a bit on your stovetop until a knife can go through. Then cut them up and simply roast with mushroom. The same amount of time. It should be just fine.

    I modified the recipe by adding some baby bellos and some shiitakes. Paired with venison steaks dipped in Stubbs Hickory Bourbon BBQ sauce and grilled along side some Yukon gold potato planks with olive oil and rosemary. Yummy! Next weekend, root soup in a crock pot. Thank you for sharing your recipes.

    What kind of mushrooms can I use? Champignon? Or the recipe calls for something else?
    Thank you!
