Mushrooms are such a versatile ingredient, they literally pair well with any main dishes, or even on their own! You simply can’t go wrong with the combination of garlic + butter + mushroom. But there is one other ingredient, or rather, seasoning that will take your garlic butter mushroom dish to the next level. And that is soy sauce. When you mix the four ingredients together, an intensely savory flavor aka umami is formed.
You could sauté these mushrooms in a pan, but to make my life easier (which means not having to clean the stove), I simply toss everything together and roast these mushrooms in a pre-heated oven for 15 to 20 mins. Once they are ready, drizzle a little soy sauce onto the hot mushrooms, mix well and serve. They are great with steak, chicken, fish or with any other of your favorite mains.
I got all my ingredients for this recipe at FairPrice Finest, and you can do the same at any of their outlets too.
