Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms

One of the best parts of my week is the community potluck that takes place in the basement of my building. Every Tuesday night, about 20 of us Seminary students gather together to eat. It’s a glorious few hours filled with a lot of food and laughter.

I made these mushrooms for one of our community potlucks a few months ago. At first I was nervous, because a lot of people don’t like mushrooms. I cannot understand that because I love mushrooms, and find them to be incredibly delicious! Thus, because I thought I might be alone in that love, I did not photograph the mushrooms for this post. I was sorely mistaken.

These scrumptious mushrooms were devoured at that potluck! There were zero leftovers- nothing left for me to enjoy or photograph! I could not be upset about that, because I was very grateful the group enjoyed them, and it gave me an excuse to make them again!

One fun fact about mushrooms is that they contain twice the amount of protein as other vegetables, making this side dish a very healthy option at your vegetarian dinner table. Thus, in addition to your regular vegetable health benefits, you are also racking up on protein points- a win-win in this situation!

Bookmark this recipe! With a little bit of salt, garlic, and parmesan, these mushrooms will disappear before your eyes. You’ve been warned.

Come back soon!

With love,

    These look and sound extremely tasty. I never understood those who don’t care for mushrooms, either. I could eat them every single day and be incredibly happy about it! Sweet little fungi. 😉 Great recipe!
