Marinated Mushrooms

DSC_0203-1

Found this recipe a while ago and wanted to make it and I went to make it one day and it says to let marinate overnight so that didn’t work, so I saved this recipe for another time and that time is now…and I am soooo glad I made it! Deeeeeeelicious!

Recipe adapted from http://www.pinkbites.com/

1 pound of brown or white mushrooms, or a mix of both
4 tablespoons of good extra virgin olive oil, or more if needed

2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
(the grocery store didn’t have fresh thyme, so I used about 1 tsp of dried thyme instead)

and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the fridge at least 10 minutes before planning on serving it.

Note: the olive oil may get hard on the fridge, you can void that by adding some vegetable oil to the marinade , or just shaking the jar every once in a while, which is what I do. (this is a note from the blog I got this recipe from and I tried this and it totally works, good to know for future recipes)!
