Soy Baked Mushrooms

These mushrooms are the bizz! They are so easy to do and taste absolutely fantastic - a deep woodland earthy flavour that's very very hard to resist.

I bake them in the oven, wrapped in loads of foil so their juices mix with the butter, soy and herbs. They are a great side dish to steak or pork but are a perfect dish to prepare for a vegetarian meal.

recipe - serves 2

2 large portobello (or 4 average size ones!)
2 tablespoon melted butter
3 teaspoons dark soy
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 clove garlic - sliced
freshly grounds black pepper
dash Worcestershire sauce - optional
pinch chilli flakes - also optional

Preheat oven 180C /gas 4

Big sheet of foil to wrap/ a baking sheet

Lay the sheet of foil over the baking tray, take a little of the melted butter and pour over the foil. Sit the mushrooms facing up on top of the butter and then spoon the remaining butter into the cups.

Add the soy and then evenly distribute all the other ingredients. Grab the opposite edges of the foil and tent over the mushrooms, making sure all edges are sealed  - so steam and juices can't escape.

Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

Serve as a side dish or as the main course with an accompaniment of boiled rice or pasta. My favourite way is with a large green salad and a tarragon, lemon mayonnaise.

Have a great weekend
