Oven Roasted Mushrooms & Caribbean Tofu

In the last Vegetarian Times, I noticed a recipe for oven roasted mushrooms which used buttons mushrooms. My plan was to make that recipe with creminis at some point.

Yesterday while making the mockamole, I noticed another oven roasted mushroom recipe in the Passionate Vegetarian. That recipe used shitake mushrooms. On the way home tonight, I picked up a mixed pack of shitake, cremini, and oyster mushrooms.

These are so quick and easy. Just mix the mushrooms, chopped garlic, and olive oil and then roast in the oven. I tossed them with fresh thyme when they were done. Yum!

The tofu is Soyboy Caribbean flavor. The paler ones are plain and the orange ones were coated with some calypso mango jerk sauce. I sliced and roasted the tofu in the oven with the mushrooms.

BTW - The blogger spell check kept trying to change shitake into Shiites. I thought that was amusing.

This was a great dinner. Though I was super hungry after mowing the lawn.

I've just recently started loving mushrooms, and have only explored buttons and creminis. (I've had portabellas out, too.) I should get exploring and try some new recipes!

yum...I love mushrooms, but I usually just saute them with onion, garlic, olive oil and lots of fresh cracked pepper. I'll have to try roasting them next time.
