Marinated Mushrooms

Marinated Mushrooms

There are certain foods that people either love or hate…without a whole lot of in-between.  Mushrooms are definitely one of those foods.  We live in a house divided.  Half of us LOVE mushrooms and the other half won’t even try them no matter how amazing I rave that they are.  No matter how hard I try they just won’t try them….sigh.  On the other side (my side) Ella, my 9 year old, claims them as one of her favorite foods.

As much as I love mushrooms I don’t particularly care for them raw.  To me they are a spongy and delicious carrier of other flavors….like vinegar or butter or salt or garlic.  Without all of that they don’t do a whole lot for me.  If that means I’m not a true mushroom lover then so be it.

These marinated mushrooms carry lots and lots of flavor.  They have a nice kick from the vinegar and garlic, but they almost have a bit of a meaty flavor that I love.  Ella and I finished these off quickly and I can’t wait to get some more mushrooms to make these again soon.

These are so easy to whip up and would be great to serve (and impress) at a party.  I’m sure you will have requests for the recipe from fellow mushroom lovers.  You can also keep them for yourself and just share with a cute 9 year old.

Marinated Mushrooms
  • 8 ounces mushrooms - the original recipe uses cremini and I used white mushrooms cut into quarters
  • ¼ cup minced red onion - green onions would be yummy, too
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Clean and trim stems of mushrooms. Place in a saucepan with cold water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Mix together onion, garlic, parsley, vinegar and oil. Toss mushrooms in oil mixture and thoroughly coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but I found that these really tasted best the next day.
  4. Enjoy!



  1. Unfortunately, my kids pretty much all fall into the “hate” side (though I have no idea why)! I, however, LOOOOOOVE them. And I know I would love these marinated ones, they sound delicious. More for me ;).

  2. I am kind of obsessed with mushrooms…these look delicious!

  3. Mary Younkin says:

    I adore mushrooms and luckily most of my family does as well. I would happily eat this whole recipe on my own though!

  4. Thanks for reminding me how much I love a side dish of mushrooms with simple flavors! These look delicious, Becky!
