Herb and Garlic Marinated Mushrooms
Herb and garlic marinated mushrooms bring something different to a charcuterie board. Mushrooms are cooked with thyme, rosemary, garlic and lemon, then jarred and allowed to marinate to intensify the flavors.
Everyone loves a good charcuterie and there is no more fun way of eating a delicious collection of bites. You can have a bit of this or a bit of that, then go back for more. Along with the usual suspects of cured meats, cheese, pâté, pickled items I’m sharing with you my really easy herb and garlic marinated mushrooms that bring a little something different to the board.
A delicious, meat-free option for pâté is my recipe for Mushroom Pâté.
These easy mushrooms are wonderful for charcuterie that can be enjoyed for entertaining, snacking, or in my case ‘Charcuterie At Sea’. I live in a beach/marina community and there is nothing my husband and I enjoy more than taking out a boat and enjoying the ocean and the weather. We always bring along a lot of food and it’s always charcuterie because you can eat at your leisure while boating the seas.
When I make charcuterie, I also like to include something homemade, a simple dish like these herb and garlic marinated mushrooms which are a delicious addition to a charcuterie. These mushrooms are also delicious in salads or as a simple snack enjoyed right out of the jar, like I do.
My preference of mushroom for this recipe are cremini or baby bella because they have so much more flavor than regular button mushrooms, but you can pick which mushrooms you like. There’s a lot to choose from.
I do like to cook the mushrooms before marinating them. This serves 2 purposes, firstly, they taste better cooked and secondly cooking all the ingredients intensifies the flavors and brings them together for a more flavorful mushroom.
