This mushroom vegan recipe is very easy to make. It is perfect for meal prep and there is a lot of room to be creative. Let’s start marinating!
Seriously, why is this mushrooms marinate so freaking good? Just when I was ready to give up on them for life, I randomly put this recipe together and fell in love. I loved it so much I made it again for my vegan lasagna recipe coming soon (you won’t want to miss that). Anyways, let’s get to this goodness!
For this recipe we will use 3 portabella mushrooms, a cloth, a container, herbs and spices, a mixing bowl and a hand mixer. I forgot to include a brush in the photo, but you will need that too!
Before we can cut our mushrooms into slices, we will clean it using the cloth. Lightly damp your cloth with water and use it to remove the dirt from your mushrooms. You can also use a mixture of 2 parts water and 1 apple cider vinegar, learn more about the benefits of apple cider vinegar!
This marinate is very easy to make. Not only will it have you licking your plate, it is perfect for meal prep. I love this recipe because there is a lot of room to be creative. I am happy to share what I did, but I encourage you to try your own mix and let me know how it goes! Let’s start marinating!
Mushroom Marinate Recipe
- 3 portabella mushrooms
- 1 tbsp of chopped cilantro
- 4 - 5 bay leaves
- 4 minced garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp of thyme
- 1/2 tbsp of old bay
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
Using a damp cloth, remove all the dirt from your mushrooms.
Slice your mushrooms into 1/4 of inch thick pieces.
Mix all your spice in a bowl, add the olive oil and whisk away for 2 - 3 minutes.
Add a layer of marinate to the base of your container. Then place the mushroom slices on top of it.
Using your brush, apply the marinate to the mushrooms. If needed add a second layer of mushroom slices and repeat the process until you've marinated all the slices.
If you have marinate left over, add it to your container. Cover it with saran wrap and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
For this recipe I let it sit for 3 hours and then I put it on the grill!
