What I Ate This Week + Roasted Cremini Mushrooms Recipe

Roasted Cremini Mushrooms with Fresh Herbs

Roasted Cremini Mushrooms with Fresh Herbs
This roasted cremini mushrooms recipe is one of my favorite easy side dishes. Y’all know how I feel about roasting vegetables–I’m a little bit obsessed. It’s a wonderfully hands-off method of cooking and the end result is (almost) always delicious. Roasted creminis also make a great addition to pasta dishes, which is how I used them this week. If you can’t find cremini mushrooms, use button mushrooms instead. (I’ve been on a cremini kick lately because they’re the same price as button mushrooms at our local grocery store.) You’ll find the recipe below!

Here’s what else I ate this week:

Indian-Spiced Veggie BurgersIndian-Spiced Veggie Burgers with Sauteed Onions and Mango Chutney // I’ve made a lot of meh veggie burger recipes in the past, but this one really impressed us. So flavorful!

Wild Mushroom Fettucini with Smoked Apple Sage SausageWild Mushroom Fettucini with Field Roast Sausage // This recipe has braised leeks in it, so since it’s spring, I thought it would be the perfect time to make it again.

Roasted Broccoli with Lemon & AlmondsRoasted Broccoli with Lemon & Almonds // I found this recipe in Everyday Food, but it’s not posted on the web, so I don’t have a link to give you. Sorry! But basically, it’s roasted broccoli with toasted almonds and lemon juice.

      I’m telling you, roasting vegetables is the best way to prepare them. 🙂 It takes a little bit longer, but it’s usually either the same or less work.

    I’m definitely getting into roasting veggies, too. Had to get over my tendency to forget and burn them, but other than that, it’s the way to go. Also I’m throwing in a head of garlic at the same time so I end up with a head of roasted garlic to use for whatever I want. The Indiian-spiced veggie burgers look good. I really like Trader Joe’s Vegetable Masala Burgers, which has veggies including potatoes and Indian spicing. Wouldn’t mind trying to make something like them myself.

      These burgers are very similar to the Trader Joe’s Vegetable Masala Burgers, but they’re a little bit firmer and a little less greasy.

      I really need to roast garlic more often!

      Probably because my old logo had no tagline and nothing to do with food! 😀 I decided to change it because I wanted something that made it more clear what my blog was about. I guess it’s working, huh?

    I love your new artichoke themed layout, it turned out really well! Did you do the design yourself or have someone else do it? I’m very bored with my current design.

      Thank you! I hired Threee Design Studio on Etsy to do my logo and I did everything else myself–I just made a few adjustments to the Blissful theme.

      Yay! I hope you like them if you make them. 🙂 I make these all the time & toss them with pasta and marinara sauce or olive oil/parm. So easy!
