Jerk Spiced Mushrooms

This meal was a big winner for me.  I love Jamaican Jerk Spiced anything, so I knew I would love this recipe as soon as the idea entered my mind.  I marinated  the mushrooms in a mixture of scallion, scotch bonnet, garlic, ginger, allspice, and other goodies and roasted them until they were just tender, but still had a little bite to them!  I definitely recommend letting the mushrooms marinate for at least an hour, instead of immediately baking them.  This really helps the flavors penetrate the thick mushrooms.  If it’s summertime on your side of the world then try grilling them.  Let me know how it goes!

 

To Portobello or Not To Portobello…

I feel like the main mushroom vegans mostly talk about is the Portobello Mushroom.  For years it has been known in the vegan world as a decent substitute for meat because of its natural meaty texture.  When I first made this recipe I used portobello and button mushrooms, but since then I have discovered a world of yummy mushrooms that are much meatier than the portobello.

You can use any mushroom you’d like in this recipe, but at the moment my favorite meaty mushrooms are oyster mushrooms, lion’s mane mushrooms, and king trumpet mushrooms.  I suggest trying one, or all, of them in this recipe!   I like to mix oyster and lion’s mane mushrooms.

 

Health Benefits Of This Meal

Mushrooms contain just as high an antioxidant capacity as carrots, tomatoes, green and red peppers, pumpkins, green beans, and zucchini.  Selenium is a mineral that is not present in most fruits and vegetables but can be found in mushrooms. It plays a role in liver enzyme function, and helps detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body.

Jerk Spiced Roasted Bella Mushrooms
Prep Time
15 mins
Cook Time
30 mins
Total Time
45 mins
 
Course: Lunch
Author: Daytime Vegan
Ingredients
  • 1 heaping teaspoon fresh ginger
  • ½ cup green onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon scotch bonnet pepper
  • 2 teaspoon soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons agave nectar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt to taste
  • 16 ounces baby portobellos or button mushrooms cut in quarters
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. To make the jerk marinade, place all of the ingredients EXCEPT THE MUSHROOMS in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Place the mushrooms in a large bowl and add the marinade. Cover and marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours.
  4. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper (this marinade might discolor your baking sheet). Add all of the mushrooms and marinade to the baking sheet. Make sure everything is spread evenly on the sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender but not mushy. They should still have a little firmness to them.

  5. Serve with a salad or rice, or both!

    Those mushrooms sound right up my alley, and the smoothie looks to be right up my boyfriend’s. Thanks for satisfying both of us at the same time! I’ll be making these for sure. 🙂

    Thanks for the great recipes. I love mushrooms. I don’t understand why some people do not. I will have to try out that recipe myself.

    Gosh, I would NEVER think to put a pepper in a smoothie. Is the taste strong? Can you even taste it?

      The taste is not strong at all! I was very surprised. There is a hint of red bell pepper, but it’s great with the strawberry since bell peppers have a natural sweetness to them! Thanks for the question.

    Never heard of red bell pepper in a smoothie but I’m sure its combination with strawberries and apples sounds delicious. I’m not a big fan of mushroom but thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
