• 3 (3 1/4 ounce) crates fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (or just shake it over the shrooms)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper (or just shake it over the shrooms too)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (or just shake this over them too!)
  • 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 2 Use a damp paper towel to wash the tops of your mushrooms. (mushrooms are like sponges, you don't want to wash them in water because they will become watery and tasteless).
  • 3 Remove any large stems. (shiitake stems are sort of woody and tougher than the caps).
  • 4 Slice the mushrooms and place on a cookie baking sheet.
  • 5 Pour the olive oil over the slices and toss to coat with a spatula.
  • 6 Sprinkle the shrooms with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • 7 Give the cookie sheet a shake to spread all the shrooms out flat.
  • 8 Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • 9 Remove the mushrooms immediately from the baking sheet with a spatula.
  • 10 Enjoy on a sandwich or any way you want!
