We love having a couple of easy to make, delicious and full of good-for-you ingredients that we can whip up in a few minutes. This fun recipe certainly qualifies in that category! Not only can you make it quickly, but it also is a great candidate for freezing. Make the mushrooms all the way until cooking – then freeze them on a sheet pan. When frozen, slide the mushrooms into a zip lock bag. They will stay in the freezer for about 3 months. To cook, take the frozen mushrooms out of the freezer and place in a preheated 375F oven for about 15 minutes.
Thyme is a super partner for mushrooms. Not only does it taste good, it also brings lots of great nutrition to the table. Thyme oil contains a chemical called thymol that kills bacteria and fungus. And using the herb in a dish like this brings an anti-inflammatory component to your meal. Delish!
