Roasted Mushrooms with Balsamic, Thyme and Dijon

Roasted Mushrooms with Thyme, Dijon and Balsamic |

I’m obviously on a roasted vegetable kick.

Although, it isn’t really a “kick.” A) It’s always been there — I love them! and B) It isn’t going anywhere.

I also happen to love thyme. And roasted mushrooms are my favorite of all roasted vegetables. I could eat an embaressing amount of them, but I guess it is better than jelly beans, right?

Although, if anyone is interested, pear Jelly Bellies are my faaaaaavorite. Need my mailing address?

That’s probably not going to help me lose 40 pounds.

Back to the mushrooms. These are so flavorful thanks to the thyme I already mentioned, but also a nice bit of tang from balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard to offset the rich sweetness of the roasted mushrooms.

These come together so quickly and are the perfect side dish to any great meal — pork, chicken, steak, tofu…you name it. They would be fantastic tossed on a salad too. Or eaten like candy. It’s almost the same, right?

Verdict: I obviously love them.

Husband’s take: Loved them too! I made one other variety that he liked slightly better–they will appear here eventually.

How I served them to my 2-year-old: As is, cut up smaller. She’s not a big mushroom fan though. I’m convinced that someday she will grow to love them.

Changes I would make: None!

Difficulty: So easy!

  14. I LOVE roasted vegetables and I LOVE mushrooms. The other day I made two packages of mushrooms and was sad after they cooked down. I’m pretty sure I could have eaten both packages myself….but I had to share…sigh.

  15. Absolutely LOVE mushrooms, but I always forget about roasting them…thanks for the reminder. These look delicious!

  16. I LOVE mushrooms! When ever I have them for a recipe I usually pop a couple into my mouth before cooking. Saute or roasted is the best way to go!

  17. This looks scrumptious!

    Also it happens to be perfect because I still have a lot of leftover mushrooms from the Easter that didn’t happen! Thanks so much Rachael!

  21. I love, love, love mushrooms and these are calling my name!!

  22. LOVVEEE this!! Ya…I could eat the whole bowl. Seriously.

  23. I can only imagine how amazing these are, soaked with all that Dijon-balsamic and herb-y goodness! I would be completely satisfied with a bowl of these and a glass of merlot. YUM!

  24. This is so perfect – I’m on a hunt for easyish veggie side dishes as I’ve lately just been making a starch side and forgoing the healthier stuff. I’m adding this one to the plan for next week for sure! :)

  25. Ohh! I might have to make these for a vegan potluck soon!

  26. I’m with Cassie; these sound terrific. And now I am reminded that I am going to miss my thyme when I move. And my sage and…well all of my herbs! Wonder if the new owners would notice if all of the herb plants were gone? :)

  27. I will just eat the whole bowl of these, nothing else, thank you. They look amazing! Great flavor, Rach!

  28. Are we the same person??? I’ve made something like this like 4 times the last couple weeks. But, I dump a healthy portion of goat cheese on top, naturally. Aaaand, I freaking love pear jelly beans.
