Garlic Mushrooms recipe is one of the classic recipes as the combination of garlic and mushroom goes well together and has high health benefits.

You may find the above mentioned quantity of mushroom slightly large in quantity. But it is good to use this quantity as mushrooms shrink a lot while cooking.

Instead of cooking the mushroom as described above, you can also try grilling or baking. While grilling, arrange the chopped mushrooms on a large oven proof dish and sprinkle a generous quantity of olive oil or butter and grated garlic on top. Also season it well. Grill it for 10 minutes until mushrooms are tender. Or you could also bake the mushrooms in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 30 minutes. Make sure to cover the baking tray with an aluminium foil.

You can serve your garlic mushrooms as a side dish. Garlic Mushrooms with garlic bread is also an option. It can be used as a starter when served with garlic bruschetta or toast.
