I absolutely love marinated mushrooms, but the are so pricey when bought at a gourmet shop. I think these are retail quality, like little flavor bombs, perfect as an appetizer or side dish.
16oz crimini mushrooms (washed, stems trimmed and halved)
2 tblspoons olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375*, in an oven proof dish, combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic and basil, pour over mushrooms and toss to coat. Cover with foil and bake for 45-60 minutes. Remove foil, let cool for 10 minutes, season with salt/pepper to taste.
