Sesame Roasted Mushrooms & Scallions

From: EatingWell Magazine January/February 2007

Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of mushrooms. Here they are paired with full-flavored sesame oil, ginger, garlic and scallions. Using a variety of mixed mushrooms makes this dish special (and delicious). Serve with Ginger-Steamed Fish with Troy's Hana-Style Sauce and rice noodles.

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F.
  2. Combine oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, vinegar and pepper in a large bowl. Add mushrooms and scallions and toss to coat. Transfer to a roasting pan.
  3. Roast, stirring once or twice, until browned and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Tip: To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add seeds and stir constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

Family LOVED this---only thing I'd change for next time is the pepper--you don't need a 1/2 teaspoon. A pinch would due. Pros: Quick and yummy
