How to Clean and Cook Oyster Mushrooms


Recipe: Crispy Oyster Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 10-15 oyster mushrooms, cleaned and de-stemmed
  • 3-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp of thyme (we used dried but you could always use fresh)
  • 1 tsp Wildtree’s garlic galore seasoning
  • juice of 1 Meyer lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of high heat oil (we used Wildtree’s garlic-infused grapeseed oil, but you could also use avocado oil)

Directions

  1. Bring the oven to 450°F and place a large cooking stone in the oven. (You could also use a large baking sheet with foil, we just try not to cook with foil or non-stick pans.)
  2. Cut the oyster mushrooms into strips (they don’t have to be perfect) and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, thyme, garlic galore seasoning, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and oil. Whisk until combined well.
  4. Add oil mixture to the mushrooms and give a good toss until all mushrooms are coated.
  5. Remove hot stone from the oven and place mushrooms gill side down on the hot stone. Place back in oven and cook for 3-5 minutes (until tops are crisp).
  6. Use tongs to flip the mushrooms over and return to the oven to finish crisping for another 3-5 minutes. Be sure to watch closely so they don’t burn.

Optional: Once finished, garnish the mushrooms by sprinkling parsley or parmesan cheese over the top.
